JOURNAI^GITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO. 



April 14, 1932. 



Office of the Mayor, 
Chicago, April 14, 1932. 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — I herewith return, without my ap- 
proval, an ordinance passed by your honorable body 
on March 23, 1932, and appearing on page 1960 of 
Journal of the Proceedings of the City Council of 
that date, whereby a prior ordinance passed on 
-March 9, 1932, and appearing on pages 1908 and 
1909 of the Journal of the Proceedings of that date 
was amended so that the granting of permission to 
the Cook County Highway Department for the im- 
provement of certain streets was altered so as to 
require the said streets to be paved with asphalt 
instead of to be paved with concrete. 

My reason for vetoing said amendatory ordinance 
is that the Cook County Superintendent of High- 
ways has informed the Commissioner of Public 
Works that the contract has already been let and 
that the grading of one street for the purpose of 
laying down the concrete pavement is practically 
completed, and, therefore, the Commissioner of 
Public Works has recommended that the City should 
permit the work to proceed in accordance with the 
terms of the contract. 

I therefore recommend that the vote by which the 
said amendatory ordinance was passed be recon- 
sidered, and that the same be placed on file. 

Yours very truly, 

(Signed I A. J. Cermak, 

Mayor. 

Alderman Hodes moved to reconsider the vote by 
which said vetoed ordinance was passed.

DEPARTMENT OF LAW. 



Taxicab Licenses: Requirement for a Finding of Public 

Convenience and Necessity by the Public Vehicle 

License Commission as a Prerequisite 

to Issuance. 

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion, submitted by the Corporation Counsel: 

Department of Law,} 
Chicago, April 13, 1932.| 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen— On September 25,M929, an ordinance 
was passed by your honorable body which provided 
that no taxicab license should be issued, except as 
provided therein, unless the public vehicle license 
commission should declare that the public conveni- 
ence and necessity require the proposed taxicaD 
service. (See Council Journal, pages 1067-1068.) 

Through inadvertence, this ordinance was omitted 
from the new code. The Supreme Court, in a de- 
cision rendered October 25, 1930 (Peoples ex rel. 
Johns vs. Thompson, 341 111. 166), upheld the 
validity of said ordinance. An effort is now being 
made by court proceedings to compel the issuance 
of licenses without complying with the terms of said 
ordinance, it being contended that the passage ot 
the new code operated to repeal it. 

We submit herewith draft of an amendatory ordi- 
nance which will have the effect of restoring this 
ordinance by making it a part of Article I of Chap- 
ter 41 of the Revised Chicago Code of 1931. 

In order that the court proceedings now pending 
may not complicate the situation and perhaps ren- 
der the action of the City Council nugatory, we rec- 
ommend that the passage of said amendatory ordi- 
nance, which is exactly the same as the fwmer 
ordinance and will only have the effect of re-afiirm- 
ing what the Council has already done, be accomp- 
lished without delay, so that the possible adverse 
decision may be headed off. 

Several copies of said draft are sent herewith. 
Yours truly, 



(Signed)

mitted with the foregoing communication. 

Unanimous consent being refused for consideration 
of said ordinance, Alderman Arvey moved to suspend 
the rules temporarily to permit such consideration. 

The motion to suspend the rules prevailed, by yens

AN ORDINANCE 

Amending Article I of Chapter 41 of the Revised 
Chicago Code of 1931. 

Be it ordained by the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Section 1. That Article I of Chapter 41 of the 
Revised Chicago Code of 1931 be and the same is 
hereby amended by inserting the following section 
immediately preceding Section 2077 thereof, as 
printed in the bound volumes of said code, said new 
section to be known as Section 2076A and to read 
as follows: 

"2076A. Taxieab licenses.) No taxicab license, 
shall hereafter be issued unless the Public Ve- 
hicle License Commission, after a hearing, shall 
by resolution declare that public convenience and 
necessity require the proposed taxicab service for 
which application for a license is made; 

Provided that such declaration of public con- 
venience and necessity shall not be necessary; 

(a) For the licensing of the same number of 
taxicabs licensed for operation and operated by 
the applicant under the same name and colors on 
the 15th day of September, A. D. 1929, or the re- 
newal of the same number of licenses annually 
thereafter; or 

(b) For the renewal of licenses to the applicant 
for the number of taxicabs of the applicant, for 
which the said Public Vehicle License Commis- 
sion shall have at any time prior to the date of 
application for such renewal, made a declaration 
of public convenience and necessity. 

In determining whether public convenience and 
necessity require the licensing of such taxicabs 
for which application may be made, the Public 
Vehicle License Commission shall take into con- 
sideration whether the demands of public con- 
venience and necessity require such proposed or 
such additional taxicab service within the City of 
Chicago; the financial responsibility of the ap- 
plicant; the number, kind, type of equipment, the 
schedule of maximum rates proposed to be 
charged, the color scheme to be used by the ap- 
plicant; the increased traffic congestion and de- 
mand for increased parking spaces on the streets 
of the City which may result, and whether the 
safe use of the streets by the public, both vehi- 
cular and pedestrian, will be preserved by the 
granting of such additional license, and such 
other relevant facts as the Public Vehicle License 
Commission may deem advisable or necessary. 



Any applicant for a taxicab license, under the 
provisions of this article, shall make proper ap- 
plication therefor on blanks to be furnished by 
the Public Vehicle License Commission and im- 
mediately upon the filing of such an application, 
the Public Vehicle License Commission shall cause 
a notice to be published in one of the leading 
daily newspapers of the City 'of Chicago, which 
said notice shall be paid for in full by the ap- 
plicant, and which said notice shall set forth the 
fact that the certain application has been filed 
for a taxicab license, the name of the applicant, 
kind of equipment and all other information from 
the said application which said Public Vehicle 
License Commission may deem necessary, and 
notifying all holders of existing taxicab licenses 
that a public meeting will be held at a public

the Public Vehicle License Commission, at a time 
not less than five days nor more than fifteen days

tice and said notice is to be published for three 
successive days. All holders of existing taxicab

complaints and protest that said holders may see 
fit. At the time of the holding of the investiga-

public convenience and necessity require the op- 
eration of such additional vehicle or vehicles cov- 
ered in the application, the Public Vehicle Li- 
cense Commission shall consider all of the com- 
plaints and protests, and in conducting its hear- 
ings, shall have the right to call such witnesses as

plication has been made. 

If the Public Vehicle License Commission finds 
from its investigation and hearing that the public 
convenience and necessity justify the operation of 
the vehicle for which license is desired, it shall 
notify the applicant of its finding. Within 60 
days thereafter, the applicant shall furnish to the 
Public Vehicle License Commission any and all 
additional information which may be required, 
and if the said Public Vehicle License Commis- 
sion then finds that the applicant is the owner 
and bonafide operator of the vehicle for which 
license is desired, and that such vehicle complies 
with all of the ordinances of the City of Chicago, 
and all of the rules and regulations enacted by 
the Public Vehicle License Commission, license 
shall thereupon be issued to the said applicant 
upon the payment of the proper license fee. 

If the Public Vehicle License Commission finds 
from such investigation and hearing that the pub- 
lic convenience and necessity do not justify the 
operation of the vehicle for which license is de- 
sired, it shall forthwith notify the applicant of 
said finding. 

The applicant shall regularly and daily operate 
his or its licensed taxicabs during each day of the 
license year to the extent reasonably necessary to 
meet the public demand for such taxicab service. 
Upon complete abandonment of taxicab service, 
for a period of ten consecutive days by an owner 
or operator of taxicab service, the Public Vehicle 
License Commission, upon hearing after five days 
notice to the said owner or operator shall there-

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 
In re : Decision of Supreme Court upon new 

ward lines. 
GENTLBM'EN-On April 8, 1932, the Supreme Court 
of Illinois rendered its opi^nion m the case of Millei 
et al V. City of Chicago, et al.. No. 21255. This was 
. a case in which the ordinance re-districting the City 
of Chicago by wards, passed July 10, 1931, was at- 
tacked by certain citizens and taxpayers on the lol- 
owing Jounds: that the new wards created by the 
ordinfnfe are unequal in population beyond reason- 
able necessity; that portions of ^^e 5th Waid are 
entirely isolated from the balance of the wai.d Dy 
WashSgSn Park, and that parts of otber wards are 
separated and isolated from other parts of the same 
wards by large parks, cemeteries, rai road yards and 
industrial centers in a manner to make such wards 
composed of territory not contiguous and compact, 
as provided by law. 

The Supreme Court held that none of the con- 
tentions made in this case were tenable, and upheld 
the validity of the new ward lines.

Proposed Easement for the Construction of a Water 
Tunnel under the Tracks of the C. & N. VV. Ry. Co. 

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion, submitted by the Corporation Counsel, which was, 
together with the ordinance transmitted therewith, re- 
ferred to the Committee on Judiciary and State Legis- 
lation: 

Department of Law,[ 
Chicago, April 14, 1932.J 
To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

■ Gentlemen — The Department of Public Works is 
desirous of extending a water tunnel, now in course 
of construction, underneath certain tracks of the 
Chicago & North Western Railway Company under 
Central Park avenue. 

To this end there have been negotiations with the 
officials of said railway company, resulting in the 
drafting of an easement granting the necessary right 
to the City and making certain reservations which 
the railway company insists upon. 

This easement was submitted to the Commissioner 
of Public Works, and after the same was amended 
he expressed himself as satisfied therewith, as will 
appear from his letter of March 11, 1932, which we 
send herewith. 

He mentions that Condition No. 3 seems superfluous 
and this condition has since been eliminated from 
the proposed easement. 

Therefore, as now drafted, the proposed easement 
is in form that is satisfactory both to the Commis- 
sioner of Public Works and to the Law Department. 

We submit herewith draft of an ordinance 
authorizing the Commissioner of Public Works to 
accept the said easement on behalf of the City of 
Chicago, to which are attached the two plats men- 
tioned therein. For the convenience of the Council 
two of the said drafts are transmitted herewith, 
together with the letter of the Commissioner of 
Public Works above referred to. 

Yours truly,

Proposal to Require Railroad Companies to Paint and 

Place Signal Lights on Railroad Structures Located 

On or Over City Streets. 

The Committee on Local Transportation submitted 
the following report, which was, on motion of Alder- 
man Bowler, deferred and ordered published: 

Chicago, April 14, 1932. 
To the Mayor and Aldermen of the City of Chicago 
in City Council Assembled: 

Your Committee on Local Transportation, to whom 
was referred (January 28, 1932, page 1699) a com- 
munication from the Commissioner of Public Works, 
submitting an order directing that the Illinois 
Commerce Commission be , asked to ^ issue an 
order to require railroad companies to paint railroad 
structures located on or over City streets, and to 
place signal lights on such structures, having had 
the same under advisement, beg leave to report and 
recommend the passage of said order: 

Whereas, Subways carrying public streets under 
and past railroad tracks are in numerous in- 
stances constructed with supporting or bracing 
columns and girders located in the center of the 
roadway, and likewise many viaducts over rail- 
road tracks are constructed with girders or trusses 
projecting upward in the center of the roadway; 
and 

Whereas, Such impediments in the center of 
the roadway, although not hazardous in former 
times of horse-drawn traffic, are in the present 
era of rapid motor-vehicle traffic dangerous be- 



cause of their unusual location and low degree to 
visTbility not only in periods of darkness and 
twilight but also in daylight; and 

Whereas, Many accidents resulting in death 
and severe injury have occurred in Chicago during 
recent years due to collisions of motor vehicles 
with the aforesaid columns and girders; and 

Whereas, The railroad companies owning, con- 
trolling and operating the said tracks have re- 
peatedly refused and denied the requests of the 
City of Chicago to paint the aforesaid columns 
and girders with black and white stripes as a 
danger signal by day and to install signal lights 
as a danger signal at night; and 

Whereas, The City Council of the City of Chi- 
cago finds and declares that by reason of the 
circumstances set forth, the aforesaid subway 
columns and viaduct girders or trusses constitute 
a menace to street traffic, and that m order to 
preserve and promote the safety of the public the 
appropriate parts of said structures should be 
painted with black and white stripes and danger 
signal lights should be installed thereon;. and 

Whereas, The Corporation Counsel of the City 
of Chicago has rendered an opinion addressed to 
the Commissioner of Public Works, dated May 4, 
1931 that it is the duty of the railroad companies 
to make that portion of their structures resting 
on the surface of streets safe by installing signal 
lights or other danger signals or safety devices, 
and 

Whereas, It appears that the power to compel 
the railroads to so install safety signals and de- 
vices is based on the police power of the states, 
and that this part of the police power was 
formerly exercised in the behalf of the sta e by 
cities and villages. It further appears that the 
Illinois Commerce Commission has jurisdiction in 
the exercise of said part of the police power by 
virtue of statutes enacted; and 

Whereas, Nevertheless, the speediest and mos^ 
expedient means of correcting the aforesaid dan- 
gerous condition and saving life and limb, should 
be adopted; therefore, be it 

Ordered, By the City Council of the City of Chi- 
cago That in order to preserve and promote the 
safety of the public, the Corporation Counsel be 
and is hereby authorized and directed to file a 
petition with the Illinois Commerce Commission 
asking for the issuance of an order requiring 
railroad companies to paint that part of their 
structures consisting of viaducts, subways, etc., 
which project through and above the roadways of 
City streets with black and white stripes as a 
danger signal by day and to install thereon signal 
lights as a danger signal at night; and, be it 
further 

Ordered, That the City Clerk is hereby directed 
to forward a certified copy of this order to the 
Illinois Commerce Commission.

In the Matter of the Submission of a Program, in 

Connection with the Home Rule Bill, for Effective 

Regulation of Public Utilities, Etc. 

Alderman Hodes presented the following resolution: 

Whereas, The present City administration has 
been devoted to a program of reducing govern- 
mental expenditures, and establishing a more mod- 
ern, efficient, and economical system of governmental 
control for the purpose of ameliorating the serious 
financial and economic crisis facing the people of 
the City of Chicago; and 

Whereas, The City of Chicago has expended from 
1923 to 1930, a sum aggregating $4,337,000.00 for 
personal services other than those included under 
salaries and wages, a substantial amount of this sum 
being paid to valuators, engineers, accountants, law- 
yers and other experts in order to deal with street 
railway, gas, electric, telephone and other utility 
service and/or rates; and 



Whereas, The annual amount paid by the people 
of the City of Chicago for gas, electric, telephone, 
street railway and elevated and motor coach service 
is over $265,000,000.00, or approximately $80.00 for 
every man, woman and child; and 

Whereas, Although there have been many eco- 
nomic, financial and technological changes in the 
public utility industry in the past twenty years, the 
legislature of the State of Illinois has failed since 
the creation of the Illinois Public Utility Commis- 
sion in 1913 — which destroyed the control of the 
City of Chicago over rates and service of utilities- - 
to adopt measures necessary and essential to pro- 
tect the interest of the public and consumers by 
strengthening the character and scope of the State 
Commission; and 

Whereas, The Federal Courts have on several 
occasions restrained the Illinois Commerce Commis- 
sion from placing into effect orders reducing rates 
of utility consumers in the City of Chicago and the 
Supreme Court of the United States, did on October 
25, 1931, dismiss an appeal by the City of Chicago 
from an order of the Federal District Court author- 
izing the Chicago Rapid Transit Company to plac<! 
into effect increased rates for failure of the Illinois 
Commerce Commission to join in such appeal made 
by the City of Chicago; and 

Whereas, Though the creation of the Stale Utility 
Commission was intended in the main to relieve 
municipalities of the burden of prosecuting rate 
proceedings and other public utility litigation when 
as a matter of fact the City has recently been com- 
pelled to engage experts to procure lower gas, tele- 
phone and elevated rates in order to save money for 
the taxpayers of the City of Chicago and the City 
is now greatly handicapped in its attempt to pro- 
cure fair and reasonable rates for gas service since 
it is without funds to employ experienced and com- 
petent engineers, lawyers, and other technicians to 
appraise the properties of the various gas producing, 
distributing and transmitting companies now sup- 
plying gas to the City of Chicago; and 

Whereas, Many of the iStates have in the past 
few years deemed it necessary to permit their State 
Commissions in order to protect the interest of their 
people and insure reasonable rates and adequate 
service, to wit, Indiana, Michigan, Idaho, Ohio, 
Kansas and Wisconsin, to compel utilities to ad- 
vance and bear the cost of investigations and ap- 
praisals; a number of other State Utility Commis- 
sions, including California, New York, Ohio, Mis- 
souri, New Jersey, Kansas, Pennsylvania, Maryland, 
prosecute all rate and valuation cases in the State 
and Federal Courts, thus relieving municipalities of 
the cost of employing special attorneys, and Congress 
has before it certain bills designed to limit the 
power of Federal Courts to interfere with rate or- 
ders of State Utility Commissions, and Arizona, Wis- 
consin, and New York now provide that such suits 
are to be tried in the State instead of the Federal 
courts, measures, if in degree adopted by the State 
of Illinois would inure to the benefit of the people 
of the City of Chicago; and 

Whereas, Public interest demands that the Coun- 
cil of the City of Chicago make certain recommenda- 
tions to the Legislature affecting each and all of 
these matters for the purpose of correcting such 
abuses, weaknesses and deficiencies in the admini- 
stration of State control over public utilities, and 
that the Council have before it correct and ade- 
quate information and data as to the measures 
adopted by other States, who being confronted by

identical problems, have been able to develop satis- 
factory, efficient, able and public-spirited Commis- 
sions; now, therefore, be it hereby 

Resolved, By the City Council, that the Committee 
on Judiciary and State Legislation is hereby ordered 
to investigate and report to the City Council for the 
purpose of submitting to the State Legislature a 
concrete program in connection with its Home Rule 
Bill for establishing effective regulation of public 
utilities for the people of the City of Chicago; to 
investigate and report upon the relative advantages 
or disadvantages of State over local control; of the 
effectiveness of the Illinois Commerce Commission 
as compared with other State Commissions; to hold 
public hearings; and to co-operate with other 
branches of the local government, and other com-

DEPARTMENT OF LAW. 



In the Matter of the Decision of the Illinois Supreme 

Court on the Question of the Validity of the 

Ordinance Licensing Gasoline Filling 

Stations. 

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion, submitted by the Corporation Counsel, which was 
ordered published and placed on file: 

Department of Law,| 
Chicago, April 26, 1932. | 

To the Honorable, the Mayor and the City Council 
of the City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — This letter is written to apprise you 
of the recent decision of the Supreme Court of Illi- 
nois in the case of Fligelman et al. vs. City of 
Chicago et al., which case involved the question of 
the validity of the city's gasoline ifilling station 
license ordinance. 

On April 23, 1932 an opinion was filed, which af- 
firms the decree of the Circuit Court of Cook County 
and upholds the city's ordinance in all particulars. 
Copy of opinion is transmitted herewith. 

To refresh your recollection of the history of this 
litigation: In November, 1928 a bill for injunction 
was filed in the Circuit Court of Cook County by 
which the constitationality of the ordinance was at- 
tacked. The complainant station owners and opera- 
tors urged numerous grounds of alleged invalidity 
among which were, that the city lacked the power 
to regulate and license filling stations; that the ord- 
inance was invalid as being solely for revenue pur- 
poses; that the license fee was unreasonable in 
amount and confiscatory; that the fee subjected li- 
censees to double taxation; and that the ordinance 
was discriminatory. 

After restraining the enforcement of the ordi- 
nance, the lower court referred the case to a master 
in chancery. We spent considerable time and effort 
before the master and secured a report on both law 
and facts favorable to the city. Then the chancellor 
of the Circuit Court gave us a decree upholding the 
ordinance, confirming the master's report, and dis- 
missing the bill for want of equity. 

The station owners then appealed the case to the 
Supreme Court and made strenuous efforts to keep 
the city under restraint and prevent the enforce- 
ment of the ordinance pending the determination of 
the case by the reviewing court. These efforts we 
successfully resisted, and the 1929 and 1930 license 
fees were collected. 

The major oil companies sought a conference with 
a former head of the law department and obtained 
the privilege of paying the fees into the First Union 
Trust and Savings Bank or the Foreman State Bank, 
under an escrow agreement to refund the fees to 
the licensees in case of a reversal by the Supreme 
Court or to pay them over to the city should the 
ordinance be upheld. Approximately $50,000.00 was 
placed in escrow, some of which was later released 
to the city.

COMMUNIGATIONS, ETC.

Your finance committee did not fully approve of 
the escrow plan, and took the stand that the fees 
should be paid into the city treasury so that the 
municipality might have the use of the money. 
Your honorable body then passed a resolution (Jour- 
nal of Council Proceedings for November 24, 1930, 
page 3975) agreeing to refund the fees if the Su- 
preme Court should declare the ordinance invalid. 

A second and similar council resolution was passed 
May 27, 1931 (Journal of Council Proceedings for 
May 27, 1931, page 275), applicable to 1931 fees, 
when the decision of the Supreme Court was not 
forthcoming at the time these fees became col- 
lectible. 

On June 18, 1931 the Supreme Court handed down 
an opinion affirming the lower court's decree and 
upholding the ordinance. 

The station owners then filed a petition for re- 
hearing, which the Supreme Court, on October 9, 
1931, granted, and the case was then reargued and 
resubmitted. 

The recent decision, which is considered by us to 
be a final determination of the controversy, reaffirms 
the court's previous opinion and action, and upholds 
the validity of the ordinance in all respects. 

As we see them the results of the city's victory 
are: 

(1) Relief from the necessity to return over three 
year's license fees already collected, aggregating a 
considerable sum of money which would be difficult 
to return at this time. 

(2) Release to the city of the money in escrow. 

(3) Probable immediate payment of the 1932 
fees. 

(4) The final settlement of the validity of the 
ordinance, insuring the city's right to enforce and 
collect annually approximately $300,000.00. 

(5) A material strengthening, through the ad- 
judication, of the city's licensing authority. 

Very truly yours,

words and figures following, to wit:

Appellants, 
No. 20493 Appeal from 

vs. \ Circuit Court 

City of Chicago, a municipal I Cook 

corporation, et al, j 

Appellees, J 

Docket No. 20493^Agenda 81— October, 1931 
Paul Fligelman et al, Appellants 

V. The City of Chicago et al, Appellees. 

Mr. Commissioner Edmunds reported this opinion: 

Paul Fligelman and other operators of gasoline 
filling stations in the city of Chicago filed a bill in 
the circuit court of Cook county praying that the 
city be enjoined from enforcing a certain ordinance 
which provided that no gasoline filling station should 
be operated in said city without a license. Answer 
was filed and the cause was referred to a master, 
who found all issues of law and fact in favor of the 
city. The chancellor overruled exceptions to the 
master's report and entered a decree dismissing the 
bill for want of equity. From this decree Fligelman 
and the others appealed. 

The chancellor having certified that the validity 
of a municipal ordinance is involved and that public 
interest requires that the appeal be taken direct to 
this court, the cause is before us for review. 

The ordinance in question, enacted March 21, 1918, 
and subsequent amended, as set out in this bill, de- 
fines 'Tilling stations" as structures or places where 
a container or containers containing gasoline or 
other designated inflammable liquids are kept or 
located for the purpose of selling, offering for sale 
or distributing from such container or containers. 
After providing that no person, firm or corporation 
shall manage, conduct or operate the business of a 
filling station without having obtained a license, it 
lays down certain requirements to be followed in 
making application therefor and provides that no 
license shall issue until after approval of the appli- 
cation by the commissioner of police, the commis- 
sioner of buildings and the division fire marshal. 
Section 286 is alleged in the bill to be invalid. As 
set out in this bill it provides license fees as fol- 
lows: Five dollars for containers or tanks in one 
and the same premises and having a total capacity 
of 100' gallons or less; $15 for each portable wheel- 
tank; $25 for containers or tanks in one and the 
same premises and having a total capacity of more 
than 400 gallons but not exceeding 1065 gallons, and 
for containers or tanks having a total capacity in 
excess of 1065 gallons, $50 for the first 1065 gallons 
and an additional fee of $50 for each 1065 gallons 
capacity or fraction thereof. The ordinance next 



provides that all licenses shall expire on the 31st 
day of December following date of issuance. The 
bill then sets out the following provision as section 
288; "All filling stations shall be conducted and 
maintained in accordance with the provisions of 
chapter 41 of this ordinance, and shall be inspected 
by the division fire marshal in charge at least twice 
a year. The fee for such inspection shall be paid 
as above stated for such inspection." Further sec- 
tions of the filling station ordinance provide that 
licenses shall not be transferable; prescribe certain 
requirements for change of location and obtaining 
frontage consents from owners of adjacent property; 
prescribe that with certain exceptions storage of in- 
flammable liquids shall be outside of buildings; pro- 
ihibit smoking in filling stations, and provide a 
penally for violation of any of its provisions. 

Chapter 41 above referred to is entitled "In- 
flammable liquids" and contains many provisions 
relative thereto. Gasoline is enumerated, along with 
other liquids, as falling within the scope of the 
chapter. Among other things it is provided that any 
person desiring to install a tank for the storage of 
such liquids shall first obtain a permit from the 
chief of fire prevention and public safety; that before 
issuing such permit said chief shall first inspect 
the location where the tank is to be installed, and 
if the site is satisfactory the applicant shall pay to 
the city collector a fee of $10 for each tank of the 
capacity of 500 gallons or less and an additional 
twenty-five cents for each additional 100 gallons 
capacity or fraction thereof; that "said fee shall be 
paid prior to the issuance of such permit and shall 
cover the cost of inspection thereof;" that no tank 
shall be covered or used until the installation, mate- 
rial and workmanship have been finally inspected, 
approved and certified by said chief; that delivery 
of such liquids shall be made directly to the storage 
tank through the filling pipe by means of a hose 
or pipe between the filling pipe and the tank wagon 
or car from which such liquid is being drawn; that 
such liquids shall be drawn from tanks by pumps so 
constructed as to prevent leakage or waste, or by 
some other system approved by the chief of fire 
prevention and public safety, with controlling appa- 
ratus and piping so arranged as to allow control of 
the amount of discharge inside the building by any 
derangement of the system; that such pump or other 
drawing-off device shall be located on or above the 
grade floor, near an entrance or other well ventilated 
place; that dry sand, ashes, chemical extinguishers 
or other fire retardants shall be provided, with pails, 
scoops and other fire appliances; that a reasonable 
quantity of such loose non-combustible absorbents 
as above mentioned shall be kept convenient for use 
in case of excessive oil leakage or overflow; that 
barrels or drums containing such liquids shall not 
' be piled upon each other or stored in any passage- 
way or beneath any window and no open lights shall 
be permitted in any such storage yard; that on all 
empty barrels or drums which have contained such 
liquids the caps and plugs shall be replaced im- 
mediately after emptying; that such liquids shall 
not be drawn or handled in close proximity to open 
flame or fire but may be handled when lighting is 
by incandescent electric lamps installed in accord- 
ance with certain prescribed requirements; that "No 
spooking" signs shall be installed in such number and 
location as the chief of fire prevention and public 
safety may require; that no tank or any motor 
vehicle shall be filled while lights on said vehicle ' 
are burning or while motor on such vehicle is run- 
ning or the occupants thereof smoking; that transfer

of such liquids from storage tank to motor vehicles 
shall be by approved hose, only, said hose not to be 
over twelve feet in length; that portable filling tanks 
of certain description may be used under certain 
conditions; that such liquids shall not be stored m 
dangerous proximity to open flame or fire; that all 
connections from any tank with sub-surface dram- 
age systems shall be so arranged as to prevent the 
flow of such liquids to such drainage systems or the 
leakage of inflammable gases from such system; 
that vent-pipes, draw-off pipes and valves shall 
meet certain prescribed requirements; that all de- 
fective and leaking piping shall be made tight im- 
mediatelv or replaced; that piping, unless without 
joints or connections, shall not extend through any 
room containing an open light or fire; that the end 
of the filling pipe for underground tanks shall be 
carried to an approved location outside the building 
and be provided with an approved metal box, with 
cover, which shall be kept locked except during fil- 
ling operations, and that a screen strainer of de- 
signed description shall be placed in the supply 
end of such pipes. Other sections of the article deal 
with the construction and maintenance of outside 
above-ground tanks, which are permitted under the 
filling station ordinance, and prescribe various re- 
quiremnets in connection therewith. 

Appellants contend that the city had no power to 
impose a license fee upon the operators of filling 
stations. In support of this contention they cite 
many cases in which it is pointed out that a munic- 
ipal corporation derives its existence and its powers 
from the General Assembly; that it possesses no in- 
herent power; that in order to legislate upon or 
with reference to a particular subject or occupation 
such a corporation must be able to point out the 
statute which gives it the power to do so; that a 
statute which grants powers to a municipal corpora- 
tion is strictly construed, and any fair or reasonable 
doubt of the existence of an asserted power is re- 
solved against the municipality which claims the 
right to exercise it; that the implied powers which 
a municipal corporation possesses and may exercise 
are those necessarily incident to the powers ex- 
pressly granted, and that since a city has no power, 
except by delegation from the General Assembly, 
to license any occupation or to require the payment 
of a tax for the privilege of engaging in it, the 
power must be expressly granted in the city's charter 
or necessarily implied in or incident to the power 
expressly delegated. These principles are, of course 
well settled. In their light appellants argue it must 
be held that the enactment of the licensing ordi- 
nance was unwarranted, because nowhere m the 
statutes can there be found a grant of express power 
in that respect, nor can it be said that any such 
power is necessarily implied. 

It must be admitted that the city was given no 
express power to enact the measure against which 
appellants' bill is here directed, but we cannot ac- 
cede to the contention that power to take such action 
is not to be implied. By section 65 of article 5 of 
the Cities and Villages act (Cahill's Stat. 1929, chap. 
24, par. 65,) power is given "to regulate and prevent 
storage of gunpowder, tar, pitch, resin, coal oil, 
benzine, turpentine, hemp, cotton, nitroglycerine, 
petroleum, or any of the products thereof, and other 
combustible or explosive material and the use of 
lights in stables, shops, and other places, and the 
building of bonfires; also to regulate, restrain and 
prohibit the use of fireworks, firecrackers, torpedoes, 
Roman candles, skyrockets, and other pyrotechnic 
displays." In Klever Karpet Kleaners v. City of 



Chicago, 323 111. 368, we said : "If the regulation of 
certain conditions affecting the public safety has 
been delegated to a city and the efficient regulation 
of such conditions requires the conduct of a business 
peculiarly affected by them to be controlled by the 
limitations of a licensing ordinance, the power of 
the city to adopt such an ordinance will be neces- 
sarily implied. It is clearly within the police power 
of tlie city to provide by ordinance for the regula- 
tion and prevention of the storage of coal oil, naph- 
tha, benzine, petroleum, or any of the products 
i hereof, and other combustible or explosive material. 
Such regulation may properly include the provision 
of methods of installation and use of tanks for the 
handling and storage of volatile infiammable liquids 
therein, pumps or devices for the removal and con- 
veyance of the contents of such tanks, and where, 
in a building in which such liquids are stored, a 
business is' conducted in connection with which such 
liquids are used, the regulation may include pro- 
vision for the lighting and ventilation of the build- 
ing, the manner of construction, and may require 
the' persons in charge of such volatile, inflammable 
liquids and of the handling and using thereof and 
of the room in which and the equipment with which 
they are used, to be competent persons, and may 
provide for the examination of such persons and the 
inspection of the places, instrumentalities, methods 
and means of storing and using such volatile, in- 
flammable liquids. The ordinance in question con- 
tained provisions of this character." 

It is a matter of common knowledge that gasoline 
is a product of petroleum, and it and certain other 
products stored and handled at filling stations are 
known to all to be highly combustible, and, under 
some conditions, explosive. (Spiegler v. City of 
Chicago, 216 111. 114.) Although the fire and explo- 
sion hazard involved in conducting filling stations in 
Chicago is shown of record, yet, altogether apart 
from the evidence, judicial notice may be taken of 
the fact that the business of storing and handling 
gasoline and similar liquids and transferring them 
at filling stations from tanks to motor vehicles m 
a great city is, without the observance of proper 
precautions, attended with a peculiar degree of 
danger to life and property. {People v. Ericsson, 26^3 
111. 368; Neiv Britain v. Kilbourne, 109 Conn. 422, 
147 Atl. 124.) By reference to the regulations in- 
corporated for the conduct of filling stations it is 
readily apparent that the ordinance with which we 
are dealing here is one which makes provisions for 
methods of installation and use of tanks for the 
handling of inflammable liquids. Among the detailed 
provisions which it embodies are requirements with 
respect to the pumps and devices to be employed 
for the removal and conveyance of the contents of 
such tanks and regulations governing the lighting 
of the premises about which such liquids are stored 
and handled. It provides for official inspections in 
this connection. The regulations here involved, ap- 
plied, as they are, by the ordinance to the conduct 
of a business which in the last analysis is the storage 
of such liquids and their subsequent withdrawal and 
sale, must be held to be reasonably adapted to the 
purpose of securing the protection of human life and 
property. In enacting the ordinance the city did not 
exceed its powers. Klever Karpet Kleaners v. City of 
Chicago, suiwa; Kizer v. City of Mattoon, 332 111. 
545; People v. Andrews, 339 id. 157. 

Appellants next contend that the license fee pro- 
vided is exorbitant and confiscatory "and is out of 
all proportion to the benefits received by filling sta- 
tion owners." To the extent that this contention con-

templates tliat no licensing ordinance can be uplield 
unless the licensees thereunder receive an equiv- 
alent in personal benefit it is clearly untenable. {Koy 
V. City of Chicago, 263 111. 122.) In so far, however, 
as it raises the question as to whether the ordinance 
is a legitimate exercise of regulatory power as dis- 
tinguished from a revenue measure, solely, it de- 
mands consideration. It is an established principle 
that where the power to license is impliedly con- 
ferred upon a city as an incident to regulation it 
may only be exercised in connection with other 
proper regulations of the business or occupation for 
which the license is granted. The city has no power 
to exact such a license fee solely for the purpose of 
raising revenue. In the exercise of the police power 
for the purpose of regulation the authority of a 
(hiunicipality is limited to such a charge for a 
license as will bear some reasonable relation to Uie 
■additional burdens imposed upon the municipality 
by the business or occupation licensed and the neces- 
sary expense involved in police supervision. {Me- 
tropolis Theatre Co. v. City of Chicago, 246 111. 20; 
Eei'b Bros. v. Cihj of Alton, 264 id. 628; Condon v. 
Village of Forest Park, 278 id. 218; Aberdeen-Frank- 
lin Coal Co. V. City of Chicago, 315 id. 99; Bauer v. 
■City of Chicago, 321 id. 259; Nature's Rival Co. v. 
City of Chicago, 324 id. 566; Ward Baking Co. v. 
City of Chicago, 340 id. 212.) Assuming that if it 
clearly appeared that the charge for a license bore 
no reasonable relation to the additional burdens im- 
posed upon the municipality by the operation of 
gasoline filling stations and the necessary expense 
involved in police supervision thereof the ordinance 
.could not be upheld, no such showing is here made. 

Appellants direct attention to the inspection fee 
■of $10, which must be paid at the outset before 
the station is opened and business commenced, and 
assert that the provisions governing these prelim- 
inary inspections are the only regulatory provisions 
there are. After the owner commences business, 
they say, there are no regulatory ordinances which 
■control the conduct of the business, and the license 
fee is solely for the privilege of doing business. 
In this the record does not bear them out. What 
the record discloses is, that there are some 1600' 
filling stations in the city of Chicago, that the li- 
•censing ordinance prescribes a wide variety of de- 
tails which must be observed in conducting and 
juaintaining such stations, and that there shall be 
inspections by the division fire marshal in charge. 
Under these circumstances the contention of appel- 
lants cannot be sustained. Klever Karpet Kleaners v. 
'City of Chicago, supra. 

Appellants contend, finally, that the license fee 
■cannot be upheld because it is "burdensome and op- 
pressive." They argue that under other ordinances 
they ai^e compelled to pay inspection fees for wash- 
ing-racks, greasing-racks, steam boilers, air pumps 
and electric signs maintained by them, and that they 
■cannot also pay the license fee here involved and 
make a living. This argument is without merit. The 
power of the ci(y to enact this ordinance does not 
depend upon the non-enactment of other licensing 
ordinances which cover a different ground. City of 
■Chicago v. American Tile and Gravel Roofing Co. 
282 111. 537. 

The decree of the circuit court is affirmed. 

Per Curiam: The foregoing opinion reported by 
Mr. Commissioner Edmunds is hereby adopted as 
fthe opinion of the court, and judgment is entered 
in accordance therewith. 



Subsequently, on petition for rehearing, the fol- 
lowing additional opinion was filed : 

Per Curiam: Appellants' petition for rehearing 
having been allowed the cause has been further 
considered. We adhere to the view expressed in the 
foregoing opinion that the city of Chicago in this 
case has power to regulate the business of selling 
gasoline and volatile oils and to license such busi- 
ness. In addition to the reasons given in the opin- 
ion, it may be observed that in 1919 the General 
Assembly passed an act entitled, "An act to regulate 
the storage, transportation, sale and use of gasoline 
and volatile oils," in force July 1, 1919. (Laws of 
1919, p. 692.) This act provides that "Except in 
cities or villages where regulatory ordinances upon 
the subject are in full force and effect the Depart- 
ment of Trade and Commerce shall have power to 
make and adopt reasonable rules and regulations 
governing the keeping, storage, transportation, sale 
or use of gasoline and volatile oils." This is more 
than a mere implication of power in the city to 
regulate the sale of gasoline. It is in effect, a decla- 
ration of the General Assembly that such ordinances 
as had been enacted prior to the passage of the act 
and were then in force are to stand as a valid exer- 
cise of the power given by clause 65 of section 1 of 
article 5 of the Cities and Villages act. The powci- 
to regulate the business of selling gasoline rests 
in the legislature and it may grant or withhold it 
as it chooses. In Kizer v. City of Mattoon, 332 111. 
545, this court held that power was conferred on the 
city of 'Mattoon by clause 65 of section 1 of article 5 
of the Cities and Villages act to pass an ordinance 
regulating the sale of gasoline. 

'We have re-examined the abstract and adhere to 
the former holding that the license fee here imposed 
is not invalid as unreasonable or as bearing no 
reasonable relation to the additional burdens im- 
posed upon the municipality by the business of 
operating gasoline filling stations but is justified by 
the necessary expense involved in police super- 
vision, thus falling within the rule stated in the 
cases cited in the opinion on that point. The rec- 
ord shows that the business of handling and selling 
gasoline is attended with unusual hazards, and, while 
not a nuisance per se, is, by reason of the dangerous 
character of the substance handled, one requiring, 
in the interest of public safety and health, an un- 
usual degree of regulation. Whether a thing not a 
nuisance per se is a nuisance per accidens or in fact, 
depends upon its location and surroundings, the 
manner of its conduct or other circumstances. 
(McPherson v. First Presbyterian Church, 120 Okla. 
40, 248 Pac. 561.) The evidence in the record shows 
numerous instances where the regulatory forces of 
the city were engaged for extended periods of time 
in correcting damage done by the leakage of gasoline 
tanks, fires caused by the explosive and highly com- 
bustible nature of the ingredients handled and the 
necessity for health regulations arising out of the 
business. Chapter 41 of the Chicago municipal code, 
incorporated in the ordinance here attacked, con- 
tains extensive regulations necessitated by the dan- 
gerous character of gasoline and like volatile oils. 
These regulations impose a substantial service and 
expense in the protection of the public against those 
dangers. The evidence shows that inspections and 
corrections of defects are from time to time made 
by the health department, police department and 
bureau of fire prevention and safety. These unusual 
precautions are occasioned by the character of the 
ingredients handled in gasoline filling stations. The 
burden of regulating the sale of gasoline under this

and the incorporated ordinance is not alone one of 
inspection but includes all burdens of protection 
arising from the nature of gasolines and volatile 
oils. It cannot be said, therefore, that the fees ex- 
acted do not bear a reasonable relation to the burd- 
ens of regulation. 

Counsel in argument on rehearing do not agree as 
to the provision of section 288 concerning the num- 
ber of inspections required. As set out in the plead- 
ings, it provides at least two inspections per year. 
They likewise disagree concerning an item in the 
schedule of license fees provided in section 286, 
whether that item is $25 or $50. These sections of 
the ordinance are quoted in the opinion as they 
appear in the pleadings. They do not appear to have 
been offered in evidence before the master and this 
court is unable to determine who of counsel are 
correct. The determination of that dispute is not, 
however, vital to the decision of the case. 

We are of the opinion that the ordinance is valid. 
The decree of the circuit court will therefore be 
affirmed. 

Decree affirmed.

final settlement of ketler-elliott 

COMPANY C0NTR.\GT. 



Honorable Committee on Efficiency, Reorganization 
and Consolidation: 

Gentlemen — Your Honorable Committee has for 
some time had under consideration the final settle- 
ment of the Ketler-Elliott Company contract for the 
construction of the North Wabash Avenue Viaduct. 

In accordance with an understanding reached at a 
conference between the Commissioner of Public 
Works and your Sub Committee (Alderman Kon- 
kowski, Chairman), an order was drafted by this 
department, by which the contractor was allowed 
a payment of $4.00 per cubic foot, for sub piers be- 
low E1.-75. ft. C. D., with the following "proviso", 
which is a part of the agreement made between the 
City and the contractor when the latter accepted his 
Estimate No. 8 and Final. 

"The above payment by the City of Chicago and 
the acceptance thereof by the Ketler-Elliott Com- 
pany shall be without prejudice to the rights of 
either party under said contract, and without pre- 
judice to any and all rights which the City of 
Chicago now has or may hereafter have to resist 
further payment and contest further liability under 
said contract or on account of said work done and 
materials furnished by said Ketler-Elliott Com- 
pany on said viaduct improvement. The said pay- 
ment by the City of Chicago and the receipt thereof 
by said Ketler-Elliott Company shall be evidence 
of the acceptance of the terms and conditions 
herein set forth by both parties;" 

This order was passed by the City Council upon 
recommendation of your Committee July 20. 1931 
(page 807 of the Council Proceedings). 

The Ketler-Elliott Company bid $10.00 per cubic 
foot for sub piers below El. -75. ft. C. D. They as- 
sert that they are entitled to the full amount of 
their bid, but due to the present financial stringency, 
desire a final settlement now, and to expedite mat- 
ters offer to settle all claims on the Wabash Avenue 
Viaduct work on the basis of $9.00 per cubic foot 
for sub piers below El. -75. 

Due to the changes and extensions in the original 
plans, and the claims of the Ketler-Elliott Company 
against the City in connection with this improve- 
ment, the contract has become involved legally and 
financially and has been the subject of discussion for 
some time. To establish the probable cost of the 
entire viaduct, a cost analysis predicated upon data 
furnished by the contractor has been made and by 
making an allowance of $9.00 per cubic foot for sub - 
piers below -7 5. the margin for "Overhead", "Equip- 
ment", "Bond", "Interest" and "Profit" would .be

sidered as the cost of the caissons, but as an allow- 
ance for the settlement of all of the contractor's 
claim against the City in connection with the viaduct 
work. 

Translated into a cost per square foot of viaduct 
($11.17) the cost of this structure, based on an area 
of 89,000 square feet, compares very favorably with 
over 400,000 square feet of similar structures built 
by the Union Station Company (average cost $11.53) ; 
these latter structures rest on hard pan at about 
E-1.-60. while the sub piers for the Wabash Avenue 
Viaduct are on rock at about El. -105. 

In consideration of the above facts, the offer of 
the Ketler -Elliott Company for a final settlement of 
all claims on this contract, on a basis of $9.00 per 
cubic foot for sub piers below E 1.-75. is acceptable 
to the Department of Public Works. 

The amount paid to date (Estimate No. 8 and Sup- 
plemental Final) on this contract, based on an allow- 
ance of $4.00 per cubic foot for sub piers below 
E1.-75. is $808,521.03. The additional amount to 
be paid, based on a price of $9.0'0 per cubic foot, is 
37,095 cubic feet at $5.00 or $185,475.00, which will 
make the total of this contract $993,996.03. 

The final settlement of this contract on the basis 
of $9.00 per cubic foot for caissons below -75. in- 
stead of $10.00 per cubic foot bid, reduces the con- 
tractor's claim by $37,095.00, thereby effecting a 
saving of a like amount to the City.

In the Matter of the Restoration andl Continued 

Maintenance of the Average Wholesale Com- 

nnodity Price IjOvpI of the Year 1926. 

The Committee on Judiciary and State Legislation 
submitted the following report, which was, on motion 
of Alderman O'Grady, deferred and ordered published: 



Chicago, April 28, 1932. 

To the Mayor and Aldermen of the City of Chicago 
in City Council Assembled: 

Your Committee on Judiciary and State Legisla- 
tion, to whom was referred (February 10', 1932, page 
1763) a resolution in the matter of the restoration 
and continued maintenance of the average wholesale 
commodity price level of the year 1926 having had 
the same under advisement, beg leave to report and 
recommend the adoption of said resolution: 

Whereas, The Index of Wholesale Commodity 
Prices published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics 
of the United States reveals that from September, 
1928, to December, 1931. the average wholesale 
price of commodities in the United States has de- 
clined by 33.7 per cent; and 

Whereas, This decline indicates that since Sep- 
tember, 1928, the value of the dollar has been 
inllaled over 50 per cent; and 

Whereas, This inflation of the value of the dol- 
lar has caused an unjust increase in the weight 
of all debts, taxes, public utility charges and fixed 
salaries in the United States by fully 50 per cent; 
and 

Whereas, This unjust inflation of the value of 
the dollar has laid an enormous unfair burden 
upon the debtors and the active producers of the 
United States, has led to widespread inability to 
pay debts, rents and taxes, and has caused untold 
distress, and the robbing of millions of people 
through bankruptcies, foreclosures and bank fail- 
ures; and 

Whereas, This unjust inflation of the value of 
the dollar during each of the years of 1930 and 
1931 has placed a premium of about 18% per 
year on the withdrawal of money from active 
production, and thereby has caused widespread 
severe unemployment and widespread hoarding of 
money, so that today millions of people are on the 
verge of starvation in the midst of most abundant 
natural resources and of the best means of pro- 
duction the world has ever seen, while probably 
more than a billion dollars lie idle in safety de- 
posit vaults; and 

Whereas, This condition could not possibly pre- 
vail if sufTicient money had been supplied by our 
Government to keep the average wholesale com- 
modity price at the level which prevailed in Sep- 
tember, 1928, being substantially the same as the 
average price level of the year 1926, expressed by 
the figures 100.0 in said Index; and 

Whereas, The price level then prevailing was 
equal to the average price level prevailing during 
the years 1922 to 1926, both inclusive, and also to 
the average price level prevailing during the years 
1912 to 1926, both inclusive, and was a fair price 
level; and 

Whereas, Through the decline of said price 
level a direct loss by unemployment alone during 
the twelve months last past was caused to the 
working people of the United States, and to the 
nation, conservatively estimated, on the basis of 
$125.00 per month for six million unemployed, at 
$750,000,000.00 per month, or nine thousand mil- 
lion dollars per year; and 

Whereas, A speedy increase in the money sup- 
ply of the United States, sufficient to restore the 
average wholesale comniodily price to the lovol 
at which it stood in Spptember, 1928, would natur- 
ally cause an iminediafo release and employment

in business of hundreds of millions of dollars of 
hoarded money, and an immediate widespread re- 
sumption of buying and of employment, together 
with an immediate thawing of frozen assets; and 

Whereas, Such an increase in the money sup- 
ply of our country would give immediate relief 
to our overburdened debtor classes, and make it 
possible again for millions of our people, who are 
now unable to do so, to pay their taxes, and to 
redeem their homes from foreclosure; and 

Whereas, There is no other means by which all 
of these things can be promptly accomplished; and 

Whereas, Under the Constitution of the United 
States it is the province of the Federal G-overn- 
ment to provide the money supply of our country, 
and to regulate the value of our money; now there- 
fore, be it 

Resolved, By the City Council of the City of 
Chicago, That we request the President and the 
Congress of the United States to speedily provide 
an increase in the money supply of our country, 
sufficient to restore in the United States the ave- 
rage Vv^holesale commodity price level of the year 
1926, indicated by the figure 144.4 in the Revised 
Index of the Bureau of Labor Statistics, and to 
regulate thereafter the money supply of the 
United States so that deviations from said price 
level, exceeding one per cent, shall, as nearly as 
possible, be prevented, and all deviations from said 
price level shall be promptly rectified; and be it 
further 

Resolved, That a copy of this resolution, with an 
appropriate letter, be forwarded to the President 
of the United States, and to each member of the 
Senate and House of Representatives of the United 

States.

SPECIAL. COMMITTEE ON UNEMPLOYMENT. 



Endorsement of the Chicago Campaign for the 
Re-employment of Men and Money. 

The Special Committee on Unemployment submitted 
a report recommending the adoption of a resolution 
submitted therewith endorsing the Chicago campaign 
for the re-employment of men and money. 

Alderman Waller moved to concur in said report and 
to adopt said resolution. 

No request being made by any two Aldermen present 
to defer consideration of said report for final action 
thereon until the next regular meeting, and the ques- 
tion being put, the vote thereon was as follows:

The following is said resolution as adopted: 

Whereas, Campaigns to increase employment 
have been undertaken in a number of large cities 
throughout the country and certain communities of 
the State of Illinois; and 

Whereas, The Campaign Committee for the Re- 
employment of Men and Money in Chicago has been 
organized for the purpose of securing pledges from 
individuals and business concerns to expend money 
in the purchase of commodities, or the repair or 
improvement to property, or to give permanent or 
temporary positions to those now unemployed; and 

Whereas, The people of Chicago desire employ- 
ment rather than charity; and 

Whereas, It is believed that this campaign, as 
sponsored by the Chicago Association of Commerce, 
the Chicago Federation of Labor, the American 
Legion of Cook County, and many civic and busi- 
ness organizations, will materially assist in reliev- 
ing a large proportion of the distress amongst our 
people; therefore, be it 

Resolved, That the City Council of the City of 
Chicago heartily endorses the work and purpose of 
the Chicago Campaign for the Re-employment of 
Men and Money. 

ReconMnendation for tlhe Enactment of Certain Measures

of Destitute Persons. 

The Special Committee on Unemployment submitted 
a report recommending the passage of Senate Bills No. 
42 and No. 43 providing for an appropriation to the 
Illinois Emergency Relief Commission and for an issue 
of bonds of the State of Illinois in the amount of $20,- 
000,000 to provide funds therefor. 



Alderman Waller moved to concur in said report and

Nays — None. 

The following is said resolution as adopted: 

Whereas, The Illinois Emergency Relief Com- 
mission in its First Interim Report released April 
15, 1932, states that 



"(1) The $18,750,000.00 fund intended to pro- 
vide relief during a thirteen-month period 
will probably sufilce for less than six 
months, and will be exhausted before 
August 1, 1932, 

(2) Total relief needs in Illinois will be con- 
siderably greater during the fall and win- 
ter of 1932-1933 than at the present time, 

(3) Private relief funds available during the 
coming fall and winter will probably be 
less than during the fall and winter of 
1931-1932, and 

(4) Local public funds available for relief dur- 
ing the coming fall and winter will prob- 
ably not greatly exceed the funds available 
for such purpose during the fall and win- 
ter of 1931-1932.", 

be it therefore 

Resolved, That the City Council do approve and 
urge the passage of Senate Bills No. 42 and 43, 
Third Special Session, Fifty-seventh General As- 
sembly,' providing for an appropriation to the 
Illinois Emergency Relief Commission of the sum 
of $20,000,000.00 for the purpose of providing 
funds for the relief of residents of the State of 
Illinois who, by reason of unemployment or other-

The motion prevailed, by yeas and nays as follows: 

Yeas— ^Coughlin, Anderson, Jackson, Cronson, Schrei- 
ber, Healy, Hodes, Sutton, Rowan, Wilson, Hartnett, 
O'Grady, Kovarik, Moran, Corr, Morris, Northrup, 
Pacelli, Lagodny, Toman. Arvey, Bowler, Sloan, Leahy,

Porten, Robinson, Mills, Landmesser, Orlikoski, More- 



land, Crowe, Waller, Loescher, Feigenbutz, Nelson. 
Hoellen, Massen, Williston, Quinn— 45. 
Nays — None. 

The following is said order as passed: 

Whereas, Subways carrying public streets under 
and past railroad tracks are in numerous in- 
stances constructed with supporting or bracing 
columns and girders located in the center of the 
roadway, and likewise many viaducts over rail- 
road tracks are constructed with girders or trusses 
projecting upward in the center of the roadway; 
and 

Whereas, Such impediments in the center of 
the roadway, although not hazardous in former 
times of horse-drawn trafTic, are in the present 
era of rapid motor-vehicle traffic dangerous be- 
cause of their unusual location and low degree to 
visibility not only in periods of darkness and 
twilight but also in daylight; and 

Whereas, Many accidents resulting in death 
and severe injury have occurred in Chicago during 
recent years due to collisions of motor vehicles 
with the aforesaid columns and girders; and 

Whereas, The railroad companies owning, con- 
trolling and operating the said tracks have re- 
peatedly refused and denied the requests of the 
City of Chicago to paint the aforesaid columns 
and girders with black and white stripes as a 
danger signal by day and to install signal lights 
as a danger signal at night; and 

Whereas, The City Council of the City of Chi- 
cago finds and declares that by reason of the 
circumstances set forth, the aforesaid subway 
columns and viaduct girders or trusses constitute 
a menace to street traffic, and that in order to 
preserve and promote the safety of the public the 
appropriate parts of said structures should be 
painted with black and white stripes and danger 
signal lights should be installed thereon; and 

Whereas, The Corporation Counsel of the City 
of Chicago has rendered an opinion addressed to 
the Commissioner of Public Works, dated May 4, 
1931, that it is the duty of the railroad companies 
to make that portion of their structures resting 
on the surface of streets safe by installing signal 
lights or other danger signals or safety devices; 
and 

Whereas, It appears that the power to compel 
the railroads to so install safety signals and de- 
vices is based on the police power of the states, 
and that this part of the police power was 
formerly exercised in the behalf of the state by 
cities and villages. It further appears that the 
Illinois Commerce Commission has jurisdiction in 
the exercise of said part of the police power by 
virtue of statutes enacted; and 

Whereas, Nevertheless, the speediest and most 
expedient means of correcting the aforesaid dan- 
gerous condition and saving life and limb, should 
be adopted; therefore, be it 

Ordered, By the City Council of the City of Chi- 
cago, That in order to preserve and promote the 
safety of the public, the Corporation Counsel be 
and is hereby authorized and directed to file a 
petition with the Illinois Commerce Commission 
asking for the issuance of an order requiring 
railroad companies to paint that part of their 
structures consisting of viaducts, subways, etc., 
which project through and above the roadways of 
City streets with black and white stripes as a

danger signal by day and to install thereon signal 
lights as a danger signal at night; and, be it 
further 

Ordered, That the City Clerk is hereby directed 
to forward a certified copy of this order to the 
Illinois Commerce Commission.

MAYOR. 



Veto, 



Ainendmenl of the Zoning Ordinance (Area Bounded by 

Pratt Boul.; N. Talnian Av.; the Alley South of Pratt 

Boul.; and a Line 176 Feet West of N. Talman A v.). 

Honorable A. J. Cermak, Mayor, submitted the follow- 
ing veto message: 

Office of the Mayor,] 
Chicago, May 4, 1932.] 

To the Eonorahle. the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — I herewith return, without my ap- 
proval an ordinance passed at the meeting of your 
ihonorable body on April 29, i932 and appearing on 



pages 2121 and 2122 of the Journal of the Proceed- 
ings of the City Council of that date, amending the 
zoning ordinance by changing "all the First Volume 
District symbols and indications so shown on Volume 
District .Map No. 4 in the area bounded by Pratt 
boulevard; North Talman avenue; the alley south of 
Praft boulevard; and a line 176 feet next west of and 
most nearly parallel to North Talman avenue, (o 
those of a Second Volume District". 

My reason for vetoing the said ordinance is that 
I am advised by the chairman of the board of ap- 
peals that the said ordinance changes the zoning of 
a part of a block; that piecemeal zoning of this 
character is improper and that it is very doubtful if 
the amendatory ordinance in question could if at- 
tacked be sustained in the courts. 

Yours respectfully, 

(Signed) A. J. Cermak, 

Mayor. 

Alderman Bowler moved to reconsider the vote by 
which said vetoed ordinance was passed. 
The motion prevailed. 

Alderman Bowler moved to refer said ordinance to

JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO. 



May 4, 1932, 



Department op Law, 
Chicago, May 2, 1932. 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — This letter is written to inform you 
of a recent decision handed down April 23, 1932 by 
the supreme court of Illinois in the case of the City 
of Chicago, appellee, vs. Chicago, Great Western 
Railroad Company, appellant. 

The city had prosecuted the railroad company for 
failure to comply with the city's ordinance provid- 
ing for inspection and certification of scales. Sections 
535 and 2941 of the Revised Chicago Code of 1931. 
The municipal Court entered judgment in favor of 
the city and against the railroad company, from 
which judgment the railroad company appealed to 
the supreme court. 

The supreme court, by its opinion, reverses the 
lower court and holds that the Utilities act of 1921 
gave the Illinois Commerce Commission exclusive 
jurisdiction of the testing and inspection of rail- 
road scales and that the powers of municipalities 
over such scales, granted by the Cities and Villages 
act, were impliedly repealed. The weighing on both 
the railroad company's track and wagon scales is 
declared to be a part of the service in the trans- 
portation of the freight offered for shipment which 
is placed under the supervision of the Commerce 
Commission, and that the power of supervision, the 
regulation of the weighing, the testing of the weights 
made and the scales used, having been committed to 
the commission, must be exclusive and cannot be 
shared by any other authority. 

While the effect of this decision is to strengthen 
the encroachment of state commissions and to lessen 
the regulatory powers and authority of municipal- 
ities to a regrettable extent, it is believed that the 
decision is in line with a number of other cases 
decided by the supreme court within recent years, 
and that an application for rehearing would be 
futile. 

A copy of the court's opinion is transmitted here- 
with.

Report in the Matter of the Enforcement of Traffic 
Regulations in Chicago and Adjacent Territory. 

The City Clerk presented the following communi- 
cation, submitted by the Corporation Counsel, which 
was ordered published and referred to the Committee 
on Traffic and Public Safety: 

Deparfment of Law,) 
Chicago, May 4, 1932.J 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — In pursuance of an order entered by 
your honorable body at the meeting held' April 29. 
1932. ordering the corporation counsel to report at 
the next meeting of the city council as to the re- 
sponsibility for the administration of the execution 
of the laws, ordinances and regulations pertaining 



to highway and street traffic in Chicago and in the 
communities surrounding Chicago, we beg to sub- 
mit the following: 

As to communities surrounding Chicago, it may 
be stated that the City of Chicago owes no duty to 
enforce any traffic regulations there, its duty being^ 
confined to its own territorial limits. 

Within its own limits the city owes a general duty 
to enforce all laws, ordinances and regulations per- 
taining to highway and street traffic, as well as other 
matters within the purview of the city government. 
There are, however, certain exceptions to this gen- 
eral rule which have come into existence within re- 
cent years owing to the policy of the state to con- 
struct and maintain state roads and exercise juris- 
diction over the same for maintenance and for 
regulation of traffic. In regard to such roads which 
have either been built by the state or taken over 
by the state, the statute provides (Smith-Hurd Illi- 
nois Revised Statutes, chap. 121, sec. 297) : 

'Whenever any part or portion of any highway 
which is a part of a stale highway system and 
lies and is situated within the limits of any city, 
village or incorporated town is taken over, the 
department of public works and buildings shall 
have exclusive jurisdiction and control over any 
part of such highway which the state has con- 
structed or which the local authority has con- 
structed and which has been taken over by the 
state and for the maintenance of which the state 
is responsible, including the hard surfaced slab, 
shoulders and drainage ditches." 

It will be noted, however, that under this section 
the state assumes exclusive control over only that 
part of the street which it has built or taken over, 
which is usually only a portion in the center of the 
street. The rest of the street still remains under the 
jurisdiction of the city, except that Section 300b 
(Smith-Hurd Illinois Revised Statutes, chap. 21) 
provides that the erection of any traffic signals or 
stop signs and the parking of any vehicles upon any 
portion of said streets without the approval of the 
state authorities is forbidden. 

While it may seem to be a complicated situation 
where the law thus gives different authorities juris- 
diction over portions of the same street, yet we be- 
lieve that the intention of the legislature was that 
the several authorities should co-operate in the mat- 
ter of enforcing the laws relative thereto. Thus 
Section 4 of the act relative to state highway main- 
tenance police provides (Smith-Hurd Illinois Re- 
vised Statutes, chap'. 12, sec. 311) : 

"The state highway maintenance police shall 
co-operate with the police of cities, villages and 
incorporated towns and with the police officers of 
any county in enforcing the laws of the state and 
in making arrests and recovering property, and it 
shall be their duty to collect delinquent automo- 
bile license fees." 

To co-operate means to operate or work together. 
When this act, therefore, says that the state police 
should co-operate with the city police, we believe 
that that was intended to impose a reciprocal duty 
upon the city police to co-operate with the state 
highway maintenance policemen in the enforcement 
of the laws. 

That the city policemen in the enforcement of 
general laws are not strictly confined to a fixed line 
in the street is also apparent from the act fixing 
police districts (Smith-Hurd Illinois Revised Statutes, 
chap. 24, sec. 421 and 422), which reads as follows: 



May 4, 1932. 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



2129 



"421. Police district.) §1. Be it enacted by 
the People of the State of Illinois, represented in 
the General Assembly: That the territory which 
is embraced within the limits of adjoining cities, 
villages and. incorporated towns, within any county 
in this State shall be a police district. 

"422. Police power to suppress riot, etc.— Duty 
of mayor.) §2. It shall be lawful- for the police 
of any city, village or incorporated town in such 
district to go into any part of such district to 
suppress riot, to preserve the peace and protect 
the lives, rights and property of citizens, and for 
such purposes it shall be the duty of the mayor 
of any city, the president or the president and 
board of trustees of any village or incorporated 
town in such district, and the chiefs of police 
therein, to use the police forces under their con- 
trol anywhere in such district." 

This act has, of course, reference to the enforce- 
ment of the state laws and would probably not apply 
to the enforcement of mere local regulations. In case, 
however, a police officer should observe any one 
committing a criminal offense or in general violating 
•a state law, even though at the time he might be 
upon a portion of the street over which the state 
■claims exclusive jurisdiction, nevertheless he would, 
in our opinion, have the right to cause the arrest 
•of such person. 

Our conclusions are. therefore, that, in the execu- 
tion of laws, ordinances and regulations pertaining 
to highway and street traffic, the City of Chicago is 
responsible for such administration only within its 



limits; that within such limits the city has the gen- 
eral duty to enforce such laws; which latter duty, 
however, is only limited by certain reservations 
which the state has made in regard to control by it 
of traffic upon such streets or such portions of streets 
as the state has constructed or taken over, and for 
the general maintenance of such streets or portions 
of streets. 

Very truly yours,

Direction for the Institution of a Plan Establishing 
"Pay-Your-Taxes" Savings Clubs. 

Alderman Toman presented the following order: 

Whereas, Chicagoans are familiar with so-called 
Christmas Savings Clubs, operated by state and 
national banks in this city, as a means of making it 
easy to save so that at the end of the year, shortly 
before Christmas, depositors may withdraw the 
amounts they have paid in and accumulated in such 
Christmas Savings Clubs, to spend for their Christ- 
mas shopping, each year; and 

Whereas, It is believed that the establishment of 
a Pay-Your-Taxes Savings Club in Chicago, similar 
to the Christmas Savings Club plan, would be used 
by thousands of taxpayers for the easy accumulation 
of funds for tax payments when due; therefore, be it 

Ordered, That the City Comptroller be and he is 
hereby requested to establish, with the co-operation 
of the national and state banks in the City of Chi- 
cago, a Pay-Your-Taxes Savings Club plan for the 
purpose of assisting taxpayers in saving for city 
taxes, whereby the taxpayer agrees to make fifty, 
weekly payments of a specified amount within the 
year, and may withdraw the accumulation of his ac- 
count, plus 3 per cent interest, for the payment of 
taxes when due and payable; and be it further 

Ordered, That the City Comptroller be and he is 
hereby requested to prepare a communication to the 
taxpayers, outlining the proposed plan, after the 
same shall have been made effective with the co- 
operation of the state and national banks in Chi- 
cago, pointing out the advantages which will accrue 
to the taxpayers if they join the Pay-Your-Taxes 
Savings Club and adopt this method of saving for 
the payment of taxes when due, and to have en- 
closed in all w.ater bills, special assessment bills, and 
local correspondence, sent out by the City, and in 
all tax bills sent out by the County Treasurer, a copy

In the Matter oi the Restoration and Continued 
Maintenance of the Average Wholesale Com- 
modity Price Level of the Year 1926. 

On motion of Alderman Corr the City Council there- 
upon took up for consideration the report of the Com- 
mittee on Judiciary and State Legislation on a reso- 
lution relative to the restoration and continued mainte- 
nance of the average wholesale commodity price level 
of the year 1926. deferred and published April 29, 1932, 
page 2081. 

Alderman Corr moved to concur in said report and 
to adopt said resolution. 

The motion prevailed, by yeas and nays as follows: 

Yeas— Co ughlin, Anderson, -Jackson, Cronson, Sohrei- 
ber, Healy, Hodes, Sutton, Govier, Rowan, Wilson, Harl- 
nelt, O'Grady, Kovarik, Moran, Corr, Morris, Northrup, 
Pacelli, Lagodny, Toman, Bowler, Sloan, Leahy, Terrell,

son, Mills, Landmesser, Orlikoski, Moreland, Crowe, 
Loescher, Feigenbutz, Nelson, Hoellen, Massen, Willis- 
ton, Quinn — 43. 

Nays — None. 

The following is said resolution as adopted: 

Whereas, The Index of Wholesale Commodity 
Prices published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics 
of the United States reveals that from September, 
1928, to December, 1931, the average wholesale 
price of commodities in the United States has de- 
clined by 33.7 per cent; and 

Whereas, This decline indicates that since Sep- 
tember, 1928, the value of the dollar has been 
inflated over 50 per jent; and 

Whereas, This inflation of the value of the dol- 
lar has caused an unjust increase in the weight 
of all debts, taxes, public utility charges and fixed 
salaries in the United States by fully 50 per cent; 
and 

Whereas, This unjust inflation of the value of 
the dollar has laid an enormous unfair burden 



upon the debtors and the active producers of the 
United States, has led to widespread inability to 
pay debts, rents and taxes, and has caused untold 
distress, and the robbing of millions of people 
through bankruptcies, foreclosures and bank fail- 
ures; and 

Whereas, This unjust inflation of the value of 
the dollar during each of the years of 1930 and 
1931 has placed a premium of about 18% per 
year on the withdrawal of money from active 
production, and thereby has caused widespread 
severe unemployment and widespread hoarding of 
money, so that today millions of people are on the 
verge of starvation in the midst of most abundant 
natural resources and of the best means of pro- 
duction the world has ever seen, while probably 
more than a billion dollars lie idle in safety de- 
posit vaults; and- 

Whereas, This condition could not possibly pre- 
vail if sufficient money had been supplied by our 
Government to keep the average wholesale com- 
modity price at the level which prevailed in Sep- 
tember, 1928, being substantially the same as the 
average price level of the year 1926, expressed by 
the figures 100.0 in said Index; and 

Whereas, The price level then prevailing was 
equal to the average price level prevailing during 
the years 1922 to 1926, both inclusive, and also to 
the average price level prevailing during the years 
1912 to 1926, both inclusive, and was a fair price 
level; and 

Whereas, Through the decline of said price 
level a direct loss by unemployment alone during 
the twelve months last past was caused to the 
working people of the United States, and to the 
nation, conservatively estimated, on the basis of 
$125.00 per month for six million unemployed, at 
$750,000,000.00 per month, or nine thousand mil- 
lion dollars per year; and 

Whereas, A speedy increase in the money sup- 
ply of the United States, suflTicient to restore the 
average wholesale commodity price to the level 
at which it stood in September, 1928, would natur- 
ally cause an immediate release and employment 
in business of hundreds of millions of dollars of 
hoarded money, and an immediate widespread re- 
sumption of buying and of employment, together 
with an immediate thawing of frozen assets; and 

Whereas, Such an increase in the money sup- 
ply of our country would give immediate relief 
to our overburdened debtor classes, and make it 
possible again for millions of our people, who are 
now unable to do so, to pay their taxes, and to 
redeem their homes from foreclosure; and 

Whereas, There is no other means by which all 
of these things can be promptly accomplished; and 

Whereas, Under the Constitution of the United 
States it is the province of the Federal Govern- 
ment to provide the money supply of our country, 
and to regulate the value of our money; now there- 
fore, be it 

Resolved, By the City Council of the City of 
Chicago, That we request the President and the 
Congress of the United States to speedily provide 
an increase in the money supply of our country, 
suflicicnt to restore in the United States the ave- 
rage wholesale commodity price level of the year 
1926, indicated by the figure I'li.l in the Revised 
Index of tlie Bureau of Labor Statistics, and to 
regulate thereafter the money supply of the 
United States so that deviations from said price

level, exceeding one per cent, shall, as nearly as 
possible, be prevented, and all deviations from said 
price level shall be promptly rectified; and be it 
further 

Resolved, That a copy of this resolution, with an 
appropriate letter, be forwarded to the President 
of the United States, and to each member of the 
Senate and House of Representatives of the United 
States.

DEPARTMENT OF LAW. 



Report Ck>ncerning the Recovery of City Deposits in 
Closed Banks, and Interest Thereon. 

The City Clerk presented the following communi- 
cation, submitted by the Corporation Counsel, which 
was referred to the Committee on Finance: 

Department op Law, 
Chicago, May 13, 1935 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — During the summer and fall of 1931 
several outlying banks, which were acting as City 
depositaries, closed their doors with City money in 
their possession. 

The deposits in most cases were protected by 
surety company bonds, and in the case of two banks 
by personal bonds and collateral in addition. The 
penal amounts of the bonds were sufficient in all 
cases to cover the aggregate of funds on deposit, 
and in the majority of cases to cover accrued in- 



terest as well. The Law Department has been suc- 
cessful in recovering for the City the sum total of 
all of the deposits and $4,574.09 interest. Detailed 
report of the department's activities and accomp- 
lishments follows: 

iSouTH Side Savings Bank and Trust Company, 
closed June 7, 1931. City's deposit, $100,000.00; 
accrued interest, $260.28. Surety, National Surety 
Company. Amount of bond, $100,000.00. Suit in- 
stituted against surety company, August 15, 1931. 
Payment of $100,000.00 received from surety com- 
pany September 30, 1931. The bond not being 
sufficient in amount to cover the accrued interest 
the City filed a claim with the receiver of the 
bank for this interest, which claim is still pend- 
ing. On this claim the City will receive, along 
with other general creditors, whatever liquidating 
dividends are realized and paid out of the bank's 
estate. 

West Town State Bank, closed June 11. 1931. 
City's deposit, $75,000.00; accrued interest, $41.60. 
Surety companies and amounts of bonds, National 
Surety Company $50,000.00, Continental Casualty 
Company, $25,000.00. Suit instituted against 
surety companies, August 15, 1931. Received from 



May 13, 1932.

068.49, and from the Commercial Casualty Insur- 
ance Company, the sum of $12,309.93. Against 
the third surety company. The Consolidated In- 
demnity and Insurance Company, we procured, on 
March 3, 1932, a judgment for its pro rata portion 
of the loss. This company closed its Chicago of- 
fice about the time we began our action in the 
courts but we succeeded however in procuring 
service upon it and then after the judgment was 
obtained we filed a certified copy of the judgment 
with the Insurance Department of the State of 
New York and finally succeeded in getting the 
judgment paid. 

West Side Atlas National Bank, closed Octo- 
ber 9, 1932. City's deposit, $160,000.00; accrued 
interest, $87.67. Covering the deposit and in- 
terest the City held a personal surety bond in 
the sum of $330,000.00, signed by most of the 
bank's officers and directors. It also held col- 
lateral in amount sufficient to protect the prin- 
cipal and interest of the deposit. This collatei'al 
was sold and the City indemnified in this man- 
ner. Full particulars concerning this transaction 
were transmitted by the Comptroller to your hon- 



orable body's committee on finance under date 
of October 30, 1931. 

South-West Trust and Savings Bank, closed 
October 9. 1931. City's deposit, $315,000.00; ac- 
crued interest, $172.60. Covering this deposit was 
a personal surety bond in the penal sum of $320,- 
000.00, signed by certain of the officers and direc- 
tors of this bank. Collateral securities in excess 
of the amount of the deposit and interest had also 
been posted to secure the City's funds. This col- 
lateral was sold pursuant to authority so to do, 
and sufficient raised thereby with which to re- 
imburse the City for the full amount of the de- 
posit plus interest. Full details of this transac- 
tion were furnished your honorable body's Com- 
mittee on Finance under date of October 30, 1931. 
Washington Park Nation.\l Bank, closed June 
8, 1931. City's deposit, $200,000.00; accrued in- 
terest, $520.59. Surety companies and amounts of 
bonds, United States Fidelity and Guaranty Com- 
pany, $165,000.00, National Surety Company, $35,- 
000.00. Suit instituted against surety companies. 
August 15, 1931. 

We succeeded in securing from the above men- 
tioned surety companies payments on account on 
the following dates the following amounts: De- 
cember 7, 1931, National Surety Company, $13,- 
282.68. Later in December, 1931, this company 
made a further payment of $21,717.32, and dis- 
charged the entire liability on its bond. On De- 
cember 19, 1931, the United States Fidelity & 
Guaranty Co., paid on account, $61,875.00. 

When the City instituted suit on the bonds pro- 
tecting the deposit in this bank it met with oppo- 
sition and delay on the part of the defendants. 
The companies first availed themselves of the 
right to remove the suit to the United States Dis- 
trict Court on the ground of diversity of citizen- 
ship. This move gave them some delay. The 
National Surety Company then paid the full 
amount of its bond. The United States Fidelity 
& Guaranty Company held out and opposed the 
City in the collection of the balance due under 
its 'bond for $165,000.00. Its attorneys discovered 
that the bank held certain securities of the City. 
such as tax anticipation warrants, water fund 
certificates, general corporate bonds, Michigan 
avenue street improvement bonds, and Robey 
street street improvement bonds, and these attor- 
neys tried to secure a favorable position by com- 
pelling the set-off of the City's claim for the de- 
posit against the securities. With the application 
of constant pressure we have, however, collected 
from this company, this 13th day of May, 1932. a 
balance of $107,012.50, in full settlement of the 
balance due the City, including interest. 

This settlement disposes of all matters in our 
hands relative to depositary bank losses. 
The following recapitulation shows the total of 
sums collected from all surety companies and col- 
lateral :

la the Matter of the Exemption of Privafely-owned 

Vohioles of Members of the U. S. Army and Navj' 

and Other Federal Officials from PaymenI 

of City Vehicle License Fees. 

The City Clerk presented the following communi- 
cation, submitted by the Corporation Counsel, which 
wiis 7'eferred to the Committee on Finance: 

Department of La^v,] 
Chicago, May 4, 1932.J 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago : 

Gentlemen — The Adjutant General, Headquarters 
Sixth Corps Area, United States Army, has sent to 
us the enclosed sample sticker vehicle emblem which 
is intended to be issued by that headquarters for 
use by members of the military service who are on 
duty in Chicago. We are requested to inform the 
police and license departments of the issuance of 
the sticker. 

As the matter of exemption from the City's wheel 
tax ordinance, of members of the Regular Army, 
United States Navy, United States Coast Guard, and 
other Federal officials stationed in Chicago, is not 
entirely clear, and as there seems to have been a 
practical exemption from the financial burden of 
the ordinance accorded for the past ten years to 
members of the Regular Army stationed in Chicago, 
which exemption has lately been extended to include 
the Navy, we are hereby bringing the matter to the 
attention of your honorable body for its decision and 
action. 

Vehicles which are the property of the United 
States and operated on the streets of Chicago may 
not lawfully be brought under the taxing provisions 
of the City's licensing law or ordinance. (Johnson 
vs. MarylaM. 254 U. S. 51.) Furthermore, Section 
2073, as amended, of the Revised Chicago Code of 
1931. specifically exempts from the wheel tax all 
vehicles owned or operated by the United States 
government. 

On ]\Iarch 10, 1922, at the request of the Corps 
Area Judge Advocate, an opinion was rendered by 
this department that members of the Regular Army 
who are not residents of Chicago, but of a military 
reservation beyond its jurisdiction, were not sub- 
ject to the licensing provisions of the wheel tax 
ordinance. The ordinance, by its terms, 'being ap- 
plicable only to those persons "residing within the 
City of Chicago", it was thought that Regular Army 
members stationed on Federal reservations were 
exempt from the tax. (Opinions of the Corporation 
Counsel and Assistants, from Januarv 1 1920 to 
April 15. 1932, page 493.^ 

It is now brought to our attention that since the 
rendition of this 1922 opinion the scope of the 
opinion has been enlarged by practical interpreta- 



tion and the privately-owned vehicles of all mem- 
bers of the Regular Army and United States Navy 
stationed in Chicago and who reside within the City 
have been exempt. U. S. Army plates, and, lately, 
U. S. Army stickers have been prepared and issued 
by Corps Area Headquarters. These devices have 
been serially numbered, records of issue kept at 
Army headquarters, and the City has been periodic- 
ally informed concerning the numbers of the em- 
blems issued and the names of the individuals to 
whom the issue has been made. It is our under- 
standing that between 200 and 300 of such special 
army emblems are now outstanding. 

Our opinion is that the vehicles privatelv owned 
by members of the Regular Army, the United States 
Navy or other Federal officials who are stationed 
for duty on Federal reservations beyond the juris- 
diction of the municipality are exempt from the 
licensing provisions of the City's wheel tax ordi- 
nance, but that the privately-owned vehicles of the 
members of such Federal services who reside within 
the City are subject, under the strict construction 
of the City's ordinance, to the license fee exacted 
thereby. If it be the intention of your honorable 
body that such privately-owned vehicles of Federal 
agents who are residents of Chicago be exempt from 
the provisions of the ordinance it is suggested that 
this be accomplished by proper amendment of the 
ordinance. 

There is nothing in the Illinois Motor Vehicle Act 
that provides for the issuing without fee motor 
vehicle licenses to members of the military and 
naval services on duty in this state, and our under- 
standing is that such members procure and pay for 
the state license plates used on their privately- 
owned vehicles. However, certain representations 
have been made to us by members of the Regular 
Army establishment in Chicago that the practice is 
quite general throughout the country of exempting 
the privately-owned vehicles of members of the 
Regular Army from the license provisions of mu- 
nicipal ordinances.

Request for Authorization of a Fedei'al Bond Issue to 
Finance a Program of Public Improvements. 

Alderman Toman presented the following resolution: 

Whereas, All local and state agencies, public and 
private, report they have about exhausted their re- 
sources in providing aid and relief for the unem- 
ployed; and 

Whereas,. Sux'veys indicate 624,000 persons in 
Cook County are without independent means of sup- 
port, and that more than 700,000 in Illinois are 
similarly distressed; and 

Whereas, This state and nation are confronted 
with a situation that cannot longer be allowed to 
prevail if American standards of living are to en- 
dure; and 

Whereas, During the late World War the gov- 
ernment of the United States lent to the allied 
nations of Europe approximately $12,000,000,000, 
later reducing to $5,500,000,000 the principal debt 
owed us; and 

Whereas, This in -effect constituted an outright 
gift of $6,500,000,000 to the debtor nations and im- 
posed upon the taxpayers of the United States the 
cost of this gift; and 

Whereas, The United States spent $22,625,252,843 
in prosecuting its participation in the war and 
raised this tremendous sum through the sale of 
Liberty Bonds, which were quickly subscribed; and 

Whereas, The present emergency is no less acute 
than that which existed during the late period of 
belligerency, and since the government of the United 
States has demonstrated its willingness to aid the 
peoples of foreign lands it ought also just as will- 
ingly aid those of its own; and 

Whereas, The American people have always 
abhorred a dole or other form of government 
charity. They want work; and 

Whereas, Competent surveys disclose sufficient 
work can be provided if the government would at 
once launch a program of construction of inland 
waterways, transcontinental highways, flood-control 
and other long-awaited and long-needed projects of 
a similar character; and 

Whereas, Such surveys show the cost of such a 
comprehensive program would not exceed $5,000,- 
000,000, or less than one-fourth of the cost of 
America's participation in the war; or one-half of 
the total loaned European nations; and by $1,500,- 
000,000 less than the amount of this nation's gift 
to the debtor nations; and 

Whereas, Launching such a program would at 
once stimulate all lines and branches of industry and 
commerce, resulting in an immediate return of pros- 
perity; and, now, therefore, be it 

Resolved, That the City Council of the City of Chi- 
cago, on behalf of the people of this City and State, 



hereby petitions the President of the United States 
and the Congress to authorize before adjournment 
of Congress June 11th a bond issue of suffi-eient 
amount to make possible the American citizen's in- 
alienable right to earn an honest living for himself 
and his family; and, be it further 

Resolved, That copies of this resolution be for- 
warded by the Mayor and City Clerk of Chicago to 
the President of the United States, the President of 
the Senate, the Speaker of the House of Repre- 
sentatives, and to lUinois's members of both latter 
bodies. 

Unanimous consent was given to permit action on 
said resolution without reference thereof "to a com- 
mittee.

Petition to Congress tor a Decrease in Federal Taxes 
and for a Drastic Reduction in Federal Expenditures. 

Alderman Clark presented a resolution petitioning 
Congress to decrease Federal taxes, and to reduce Fed- 
eral expenditures. 

Alderman Clark moved to adopt said resolution. 

Alderman Mills moved to refer to the Committee on 
Finance. 

Alderman Clark moved to lay on the table the motion 
to refer. 

The motion to lay on the table prevailed. 

Alderman Mills moved to amend the preamble of the 
resolution by striking out the second and third para- 
graphs. 

Alderman Clark moved to lay the amendment on the 
table. 

The motion to lay on the table prevailed (Aldermen 
Mills and Northrup requesting that they be recorded as 
voting "No" on the motion). 

The question thereupon being put on the adoption of 
the resolution, the motion prevailed (Aldermen Jack- 
son, Konkowski, Feigenbutz and Nelson requesting that 
they be recorded as voting "No") . 

The following is said resolution as adopted: 

Whereas. We are witnessing the spectacle of the 
Congress of the United States striving to fmd ad- 
ditional classes of property, persons and activities 
to tax. despite the fact that the present laws ex- 
tracted $198,600,000 from the residents of Cook 
County for the year 1930; and 

Whereas, This crushing tax load has contributed 
to and is largely responsible for the closing of fac- 
tories, has prevented industries from re-opening, 
has caused the loss of millions on transportation, has 
curtailed employment, and has spread want and 
suffering among the people, leaving in its trail 
thousands of foreclosures, receiverships, bank- 
ruptcies and suicides; and 

Whereas, Dispatches from Washington for sev- 
eral weeks have represented the representatives and 
senators as complaining and offering as alibi the 
pressure put on them by organized minorities: and 

Whereas. The members of the Chicago City 
Council and His Honor, the Mayor, are truly repre- 
sentative and responsive to approximately 90 per- 
cent of the people in tax matters, as has been shown 
conclusively by the popular approval expressed at 
the cut of 21 per cent, or approximately $15,000,000, 
in the municipal payroll alone of the City of Chi- 
cago and a like reduction in other expenditures, and 
consequently are in a position to voice the sentiment 
of practically every person and corporation not 
flnancially interested in governmental extravagance 
and waste in this community; therefore, be it 

Resolved, By the City Council of the City of Chi- 
cago, That on behalf of, and at the earnest desire 
of the people of Chicago and Cook County, we re- 
spectfully represent to the Congress of the United 
States the following: 

1. That it is the universal desire of the resi- 
dents of Chicago and Cook County that federal 
taxes should be decreased substantially, at least a 



minimum of 20 per cent, as is not only contem- 
plated and planned in Cook County but the move- 
ment for which has actually been started with 
every reasonable hope of success. 

2. That it is equally the almost unanimous 
desire of all local residents that federal expenses 
should be slashed drastically so that not only 
waste and extravagance will be completely elimi- 
nated, but that the needless, questionable and less 
beneficial services of the federal government be 
discarded from the federal budget, and that the 
essential and major services of the federal govern- 
ment be curtailed to as great an extent as possible. 

3. That to the City Council of the City of Chi- 
cago, in view of the probable saving of more than 
$40,000,000.00 annually in governmental expendi- 
tures of the local governments of Cook County out 
of appropriations totaling less than $300,000,000.00, 
the proposed saving of only $40,000,000.00 in 
federal expenditures of two million dollars appears 
trivial and deserving of ridicule. 

4. That an enormous decrease in federal ex- 
penditures is not only desired by the people we 
represent, is not only advisable from a political 
viewpoint and actually essential to the welfare of 
the people of Chicago and Cook County and its 
trade, commerce and industry, but is truly vital 
to the economic recovery of our people and the 
preservation of the imperative local governmental 
functions, because it is financially impossible to 
extract federal, state and local levies amounting 
to a total of $489,000,000.00 in taxes from the 
people of Cook County under present conditions. 

be it further 

Resolved, That we hereby petition the Congress of 
the United States to consider the representations 
made herein and to take action in accordance with 
the desires of the people of Cook County as ex- 
pressed herein.

siil)mitled hy Honorable A. ,1. Cernnik, Mayor, consider- 
ation oC which was deferred: 



Office of the Ma you, | 
Chicago, May 17, 1932.J 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago : 

Gentlemen — I return herewith williout my ap- 
proval an ordinance passed by your honorable body 
on May 13, 1932, and appearing on pages 2172 and 
2173 of the Journal of the Proceedings of the City 
Council of that date, purporting to grant a variation 
of the regulations of the zoning ordinance to permit 
the establishment of a gasoline filling station in an 
Apartment District on premises located at 956 Noble 
street. 

My reason for vetoing said ordinance is that I am 
advised by the Corporation Counsel that under the 
provisions of the State Zoning Enabling Act the 
zoning ordinance may neither be varied nor amended 
without a public hearing after public notice; that 
in the present instance there was no public hearing 
after public notice, and that such being the case 
the ordinance in question is void in that it was not 
enacted in conformity with the requirements of the 
statute. 

Yours truly.

Tu I he Huiwrable, the Cily Cuiincil of the Cihj uf 
Chicago: 

CiENTLEMEN — We deem it our duly 1o call In Hie 
attiMilion of your honorable body a ])roblem in re- 
lation In Ihe forthcoming Genlury of Progress 
Exijositiou that has been under consideration in the 
Department of Law for many months but concern- 
ing which no satisfactory solulion was arrived at, 
unless the action just taken by the South I'ai'k 
Commissioners calling a special meeting for tiiis 
date will bring about some solution. 

The matter to which we refer is the control over 
the exposition with respect to the City's building 
and health regulations. 

The exposition is to be located ia ilie lerrilory 
under the jurisdiction of the South Park Commis- 
sioners. Buildings have been under construction 
for a year and a half, but while the exposition 
authorities by contract ordinance are subject to 
"the superior governmental control of the Commis- 
sioners" no detailed ordinances have been adopted 
by the South Park Commissioners which specify the 
details of the building to be constructed. Conse- 
quently unless this can be settled by the action that 
the Park Commissioners are about to make at their 
special meeting, it has not yet been determined 
whether the City authorities or the Park Commis- 
sioners are to be held responsible for the safety of 
the public. 

The question was llrst brouglit up in the lalter 
part of the year 1930, at which time a request was 
received from the attorney of the World's Fair 
Association who wanted to advise the promoters of 
the exposition with respect to the powers of the 
Department of Health of the City of Chicago over 
that part of the park property which is io be 
occupied by the exposition. 

In response to this request an opinion was written 
under date of December 23, 1930, wherein the Law 
Department took the position that the City of Chi- 
cago had the authority to enforce its health and 
building regulations within the territory in question. 
This opinion did not appear to be satisfactory io 
either the Park Commissioners or the World's Fair 
Association, but nothing was done for a long time 
by the South Park Conmiissioners in the way of 
assuming responsibility. 

The jurisdiction of Park Commissioners for the 
purposes for which they are created within the 
territory that they control is exclusive of the powers 
of the municipality, and the Park Commissioners 
are clothed with considerable police powers, although 
these do not seem to include powers with respect to 
buildings or health, unless there is enough in the 
World's Fair Act passed by the General Assembly 
June 18, 1929, and two subsequent acts to give this 
power for the purposes of this exposition. In 
addition to passing the "act in relation to the Chi- 
cago's World's Fair Centennial Celebration", ap- 
proved June 18, 1929, the General Assembly has 
passed an act declaring that the holding of a world's 
fair within a park is a park purpose (See 1931 
Session Laws, page 405), and that the use and 
occupation of a site within a park for such pur- 
poses is a "use for public and park purposes" (Ibid, 
page 692). 



Inasimich as it was indicated to the Corporation 
Counsel that the South Park Commissioners \yould 
resist the enforcement of Ci1,y ordinances in park 
territory, an effort was made to induce the Park 
Commissioners to acquiesce in and enforce the City 
ordinances without reference to the q\|;estion of 
jurisdiction, as a matter of comity, jiist as the 
federal authorities accept and enforce the City's 
ordinances with respect to the property of the 
federal government within the City of Chicago. 
Although this proposed plan was looked upon with 
favor by the World's Fair Association, which 
appi'eciated that unless it was backed by govern- 
mental authority in the matter of the construction 
and maintenance of the buildings it would be 
powerless to enforce even the most reasonable regu- 
lations, the plan was riot accepted by the South 
Park Commissioners, and the work of constructing 
the buildings went on without any governmental 
authority as to details. While we believe that the 
City Law Deijartment had correctly stated the law 
with reference to the situation, we did not consider 
it advisable to instigate any court proceedings, on 
account of the delay that would necessarily follow. 

' The represenlalives of the World's Fair Asso- 
ciation state that although there has been no build- 
ing code adopted by tlie South Park Commissioners, 
the association, nevertheless, bad taken sieps to in- 
sure a measure of safely in the buildings in question 
by following as a guide for construction work tlic 
standard building code adopted by tlic National Board 
of Underwriters, with some modifications iwhich 
were regarded as necessary. It is claimed that by 
this means the construction work already done has 
been made safe and adequate for the purposes for 
which it is intended, even though there were no 
detailed constru'ction requirements imposed by gov- 
ernmental authority. _ It_ has been manifest, how- 
ever, that work which "might be fraught with such 
momentous consequences to the public should not 
be carried on without a detailed code as a basis for 
the builders to rely on. , 

In view of the facts above stated a series of con- 
ferences was arranged or attempted by the Cor- 
poration Counsel for the purpose of securing some 
kind of definite action on the part of the South 
Park Commissioners. It was suggested to the Com- 
missioners that they could adopt a building code 
for the purpose under the enlarged authority given 
by virtue of the acts of the legislature mentioned 
above, or they could, by ordinance, adopt the City's 
code for the park and enforce i1. In this way the 
City could avoid raising the question of jurisdiction 
and still be reasonably certain that the ordinances 
wouid be enforced. The park authorities, however, 
until very recently, took no action in regard to these 
suggestions which were advanced in the nature of a 
compromise. Within the last few days, however, 
they have realized the importance of the matter 
and have taken action which may result in a solution 
of the difficulty. They have called a meeting to be 
held on this day (May 18th), at which it is proposed 
to select a committee to prepare and submit a build- 
ing code which can be adopted by the South Park 
Commissioners and enforced for the purpose during 
the construction of the buildings and the continuauce 
of the fair. 

In order that your honorable body may be fully 
advised of the situation we give you these facts so 
that such action may be taken by your honorable 
body as will tend to lessen the danger of faulty con- 
struction or maintenance of these buildings. Even 



May 18, 1932. 



COMiMUNIGATIONS, ETC. 



2179 



(hough, in a certain sense (he responsihility lies 
elsewhere, the City government will nol be able to 
escape wholly from responsibility it' some serious 
unlooked-for catastrophe should occur. 

We therefore recommend that the matter be re- 
ferred ])y your honorable body to such committee 
as may be deemed proper, with a view to arriving 
at an understanding with the South Park Commis- 
sioners or to taking such other action as may be 
advisable. It has occurred to us as one of the means 
that would solve the problem that there could be an 
ordinance adopted containing a modified building 
code suitable for the purpose limited to park areas 
wherein temporary expositions are held. We merely 
express this idea, but are not encouraging it, be- 
cause we do not consider it wise to embarrass the 
Council or its committee with any recommendation 
or suggestion at this time except that there should 
be a reference to a committee with direction to go 
info the questions involved without delay. We be- 
lieve the whole subject matter should be gone over 



by such experts as may be required, in order that 
the Council may act only on sound advice. 

Yours truly,

First Assistant Corporation Counsel.

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion, which was ordered placed on file: 

Office op the Attorney General,| 
Washington, D. C, May 21, 1932.) 

Honorable Peter J. Brady, City Clerk, Chicago, 

Illinois: 

,SjR_This Department has received by reference 
from the White House your circular letter of the 
16th instant embodying a resolution adopted at a 
special meeting on the 13th instant by the City 
Council of the City of Chicago, approving pending 
Federal legislation providing for more drastic pun- 
ishment of kidnapers. The bills pending in Con- 
gress to which the Council's resolution refers will 
probably be passed. Under present conditions no 
doubt they should be. But the duty of detecting 
and punishing the crime of kidnaping is one wholly 
for the states. That offense cannot be made a Fed- 
eral crime, unless committed within certain limited 
areas within which the Federal government has 
exclusive sovereignty. The laws referred to by 
the Council would authorize Federal prosecution 
only in case kidnaped persons are transported across 
state lines or in case the United States mails are 
made use of and thus only reach the offenders in 
this roundabout way. 

The crime situation, which is one primarily for 
the consideration of the states, is briefly but clearly 
stated in a recent radio address by the Attorney 
General, of which I enclose a copy herewith. 

Respectfully, 

For the Attorney General, 

(Signed) Charles P. Eisson, 

Assistant Attorney General. 



Request for Repeal of the Proliibition against "All 
Night" Parking. 

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion, which was, together with the ordinance transmitted 
therewith, referred to the Committee on Traffic and 
Public Safety: 

Chicago Motx)r Club,1 
Chicago, May 26, 1932.J 

Hon. Peter J. Brady, City Clerk, City Hall, Chicago, 

Rlinois : 

Honorable iSm — I am transmitting to you an or- 
dinance to repeal Section 23 of Article 5 of the 
Uniform Traffic Code for the City of Chicago, 
adopted July 30, 1931, with the request that this 
ordinance be introduced at the next session of the 
City Council, which I understand will convene June 
1, 1932. This section of the traffic code deals with 
the parking of vehicles and makes it an offense for 
an operator to park a vehicle on any street for a 
longer period than thirty minutes between the 
hours of 2 A. M. and 6 A. M. of any day. 



Since the attempted enforcement of the provi- 
sions of this ordinance by the police I have re- 
ceived numerous letters of complaint. In addition 
to this, many hundreds of telephone calls have 
come into this office protesting against the enforce- 
ment of the ordinance. 

Much to our surprise, we discovered that many 
of the complainants against the enforcement of the 
ordinance were men who at the present time are 
renting garages. The basis of their complaint is 
this: frequently they are required to come home 
late in the evening, and rather than subject them- 
selves to the hazard of dark alleys they prefer to 
leave their cars in front of their homes. Many 
of these motorists say that they have been victims 
of hold-ups in the past and will under no consid- 
eration subject themselves or their families to a 
repetition of such an experience. 

It has been urged in behalf of the enforcement 
that such an enforcement will reduce the number 
of car thefts and consequently lower insurance 
rates. Many of our correspondents point out that 
(his statement is ridiculous for the reason that the 
theft of cars between the hours of 2 A. M. and 6 
A. M. is unquestionably the lightest period for such 
practices of the entire twenty-four hours, and that 
there is far more danger of theft of cars which are 
parked during the remaining period of the day. 

The other point advanced to the effect that it 
is extremely hazardous in cases of fire where cars 
are parked, also is fallacious, in the opinion of our 
correspondents. Cars will be found parked in the 
streets in far greater numbers during other hours 
than those restricted in the ordinance. 

Under present economic conditions it is inad- 
visable to enforce a punitive measure. Thousands 
of our citizens are barely able to keep their cars 
m operation and during the summer months they 
have counted on keeping them on the streets. To 
force them to garage their cars would be an un- 
necessarily harsh burden, considering the weight of 
taxation under which motorists now labor. 

It is perfectly clear to any thinking citizen that 
the Mayor, as an elected public officer, must en- 
force all adopted ordinances in accordance with his 
oath of office. It would place the Mayor and the 
law enforcement officers in an anomalous position 
if they were to accede to the request of any body 
of citizens for non-enforcement of any ordinance. 
The Mayor and law enforcement otficers are simply 
doing their duty in enforcing this ordinance and 
certainly would be subjected to criticism if they 
pursued any other course. One remedy lies in re- 
peal of the ordinance. 

For these reasons I respectfully urge the Council 
to consider this question of repealing the ordinance, 
and I will be grateful to you if, when the ordi- 
nance is introduced, you will read this communi- 
cation to the City Council.

In the Matter of the Employment of Willard R. Matheny 

to Represent the City in Certain Law Actions 

against the Southern Surety Co. 

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion, submitted by the Corporation Counsel, which was, 
together with the ordinance transmitted therewih, re- 
ferred to the Committee on Finance: 



Department of Law, 
Chicago, June 1, 1932. 

To the Honorable the City Council of the City of^ 
Chicago: 

Genti,emen — There are pending in the Circuit 
Court of Cook County two law actions instituted by 
the City of Chicago against the Southern Surety 
Company, based upon claims arising out of the con- 
tracts with Arthur F. Henderson and the Electrical 
Material Company made during the term of George 
E. Carlson, as Commissioner of Gas and Electricity. 
These cases were begun in 1924 and were handled 
by Willard R. 'Matheny, as Special Assistant Corpora- 
tion Counsel. The surety bonds covered by the cases 
total $80,000.00, and Mr. Matheny appears to be con- 
fident that he can recover judgments and collect for 
the City a considerable portion of that aggregate 
amount. Whether his faith in the successful out- 
come of the litigation can be justified is a matter of 
course undeterminable at this time. 

Because of Mr. Matheny's intimate familiarity with 
the details of this litigation, he is, in our judgment, 
the logical attorney to prosecute these cases to a 
conclusion, yet, due to the City's stringent financial 
situation, no funds are available out of which this 
department can pay him even a modest per diem 
fee. 

In order that the cases may be prosecuted to final 
determination we have pointed out to Mr. Matheny 
the obvious fact that his long association with the 
litigation makes it inadvisable to have any other 
lawyer pick up the cases in their present state, be- 
cause of the extensiveness of the record and the in- 
tricacies, of the facts involved, and we have appealed 
to him, as a member of the Chicago Bar and a former 
Special Assistant Corporation Counsel, that he con- 
sider it his moral duty to continue the litigation on 
the only basis which the City can now offer, namely, 
that of a contingent fee. He has finally consented to 
do this and to accept a re-employment and vigorously 
prosecute these cases on the contingent basis whereby 
he is to receive 1/3 of any amount collected from the 
Southern Surety Company, or other defendant, or 
from any successor, by settlement or by payment after 
judgments. Court costs, court reporting and printing 
bills are, of course, to be paid directly by the City 
but, under the arrangement made, are to be subject 
at all times to the approval of the head of the law 
department. 

Under all circumstances the above arrangement 
made with Mr Matheny is deemed one which should 
be adopted and one which is recommended by the 
law department to your honorable body. If the same 
meets with your approval it is requested that the 
requisite authority to make the employment upon 
the above basis be promptly delegated to the head 
of the law department. 

We submit herewith, draft of an ordinance for the 
employment of Mr. Matheny on the basis above out- 
lined.

cago passed an ordinance on March 9, 1927, pro- 
viding for the issuance of bonds to the amount of 
three million seven hundred thousand ($3,700,- 
000.00) dollars for constructing a bridge at North 
Wabash avenue with approaches thereto and for 
acquiring land for such approaches and providing 
for the payment thereof; and 

Whereas, The City Council of the City of Chi- 
cago passed an .ordinance on July 29, 1930, pro- 
viding for the construction of the said bridge across 
the main branch of the Chicago river at North Wa- 
bash avenue with approaches thereto, and as part 
of Isaid improvement provided for changing ithe 
grades of certain streets and alleys and for the stub- 



ending of the lower level of North Wabash avenue 
at East Illinois street; and 

Whereas, The City of Chicago, under the au- 
thority of the aforementioned ordinances, has built 
and constructed the said North Wabash avenue 
bridge and approaches and has completed the north 
approach thereto except that part which was to 
occupy a part of the land belonging to the trustee? 
of the estate of Michael Espert, deceased, located 
at the northwest corner of North Wabash avenue 
and East Kinzie street, and has changed the grade 
of North Wabash avenue, East Kinzie street and 
East North Water street -and East Austin avenue at 
North Wabash avenue and the east and west alley 
lying between East Kinzie street and East Austin 
avenue by depressing the roadway and sidewalk 
levels of said streets and alley and has stub-ended 
the lower level of North Wabash avenue at East 
Illinois street; and 

Whereas, The City of Chicago as a necessary 
part of said improvement, requires the fee to suf- 
iicient land and premises located at the northwest 
corner of North Wabash avenue and East Kinzie 
street now belonging to the said trustees of the 
estate of Michael Espert, deceased, to permit the 
completion of the north approach of said North

Wabash avenue, the said property located at the 
northwest corner of North Wabash avenue and East 
Kinzie street belonging to the said trustees of the 
estate of Michael Espert, deceased, has been de- 
preciated in value due to loss of accessibility and 
a reduction of the means of ingress and egress, and

has been substantially restricted and injuriously af- 
fected, to the serious loss and damage of the said 
trustees of the estate of Michael Espert, deceased;

Michael Espert, deceased, now claim and are as-

FIREIVIEN'S ANNUITY AND BENEFIT FUND. 



In the Matter of Proposed Reductions in Tax Levies for 
the Years 1931 and 1932. 

The City Clerk presented the following resolution, 
submitted by the Retirement Board of the Firemen's 
Annuity and Benefit Fund, which was referred to the 
Committee on Finance; 

Whereas, The act entitled "An Act to provide for 
the creation, setting apart, maintenance and adminis- 
tration of the firemen's annuity and benefit fund in 
cities having a population exceeding 500-,00'0 in- 
habitants" in force July 1, 1931, in Section 2 thereof 
provides for the creation of the retirement board and 
charges the said board with the duty of administer- 
ing the annuity and benefit fund created by said act; 
and 

Whereas, Section 6 of the said act makes it the 
duty of the said retirement board to see that all 
amounts specified in the act to be applied to the 
said annuity and benefit fund, from any source, are 
collected and applied to such fund, and the various 
sums to be contributed by the City are so contributed 
and are received into said fund; and 

Whereas, Section 11 of the said act requires that 
the amount of tax to be levied in each year shall be 
certified to the City Council of such City by the said 
retirement board; and 

Whereas, The said retirement board has hereto- 
fore certified to the City Council of the City of Chi- 
cago the amount of tax to be levied in the year 1932 
based upon the certain- estimates of amounts re- 
quisite to pay annuities and benefits as required in 
said act, as well as estimates of the amounts neces- 
sary to pay the City contributions specified in said 
act; and 

Whereas, The retirement board of the firemen's 
annuity and benefit fund has no power, under the act 
creating the said board, to fix any amount of tax to 
be levied in the year 1932 other than as specified 
in the act creating the said board and heretofore cer- 
tified to the City Council; and 

Whereas, The present economic distress prevalent 
throughout the world has so affected the people of 
Chicago as to seriously interfere with the prompt 
payment of taxes levied pursuant to statute; and 

Whereas, It is the expressed desire of the City 
Council of the City' of Chicago to lighten as far as 
possible the burdens of the people of the City of 
Chicago during the period of economic recovery by 
minimizing the amount of the tax levy for the year 
1932 and by a probable reconsideralion of the lax 
levy for the year 1931; and 

Whereas, The law firm of Chapman and Cutler 
have in writing notified this board that the large 
amount of tax warrants issued against the tax levy 
for the purposes of this fund for the year 1931 pre- 
clude the advisability of now making any change 



in the said levy for 1931 because of a resultant pos- 
sible jeopardy to the investment made by the pur- 
chasers of said warrants; now, therefore, be it 

Resolved, That the City Council of the City of Chi- 
cago be advised as to the legal status of the tax levy 
made for the purposes of this fund for the year 
1931, and be urged to make no change therein for 
the welfare of the credit of this fund and of the in- 
vestment made in tax anticipation warrants hereto- 
fore issued by this fund; and be it further 

Resolved, That the City Council of Chicago be in- 
formed that the estimated actual expenditures of 
the firemen's annuity and benefit fund payable dur- 
ing the year 1933 will be approximately $1,800,000; 
that it is estimated that the said fund will receive 
from the 1931 tax collections approximately $600,000, 
and about $240,000 in salary deductions; that the 
minimum tax levy that could be made to provide the 
means of issuance of the amount of tax warrants 
necessary to meet the requirements of the said fund 
during 1933 would have to be approximately $1,800,- 
OC'O on the assumption that a part of the cash re- 
cniirements for 1933 may be secured through the 
snle of 1933 tax warrants in the latter part of the 
year 1933; and be it further 

Resolved, That the City Council of the City of 
Chicago, in arranging a budget for the year 1932 
have in mind that the absolute needs of the fire- 
men's annuity and benefit fund to be paid out of the 
taxes levied for the year 1932 will require a tax levy 
of not less than $1,800,000 for the said fund and 
that the amount necessary for reserves to meet ac- 
crued liabilities when the same may become pay- 
able will require a tax levy of an additional $2,263,- 
948.57; and be it further 

Resolved, That a copy of these resolutions be sent 
to His Honor the Mayor and the members of the City 
Council for their information by the secretary of 
this fund. 



The above is a true, full and correct copy of reso- 
lutions adopted by the retirement board of the fire- 
men's annuity and benefit fund at a special meeting 
of the said iDoard held in the City of Chicago on 
Saturday, May 28, 1932.
